Where Did The Twenty Three Billion Dollars Go?

Jane Corbin investigates claims that as much as $23bn may have been lost, stolen or not properly accounted for in Iraq. Now more than 70 whistleblower cases threaten to reveal the scandals behind billions of dollars worth of waste, theft and corruption during the war. The US justice department has imposed gagging orders which prevent the real scale of the problem emerging.

Interesting question considering the current taxpayer bailouts of the international banking system. Doesn’t that mean we own them now? Yeah. Right.
