From today's USA TODAY:

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Pentagon is sending a team of investigators to Iraq because of the growing number of cases of fraud and other irregularities in contracts involving weapons and supplies for Iraqi forces.
"The (Defense) Department is concerned with the number of contracting improprieties" that have been uncovered, department spokesman Bryan Whitman said Tuesday

Meanwhile, the Bush Administration is going to request additional funds for the Iraq war over and above the billions already well spent.

We shall also not mention (since the mainstream media has not) that one officer may have committed suicide over his part in all this. Although there does seem to be some question about his death and the Army continues to investigate. Seems he was pointing fingers at private contractors with whom he had been ordered to work. Questions of money and missing weapons (about 200 at least) came up. Hmmm...
