According to various news reports: 95% of the 9 billion dollars for Iraq reconstruction, cannot be found.This is a great tragedy. Just think about using that 9 billion for US construction of schools, hiring teachers, giving cancer victims free care. All of these American issues could be funded with 9 billion dollars. So, who is in charge?

We are fighting the mentality of the 12th Century. It is an impossible task.Like Vietnam, we are involved in a civil war.Over 120 Democrats in the house refused to go along with the funding for that war...but it is not enough. The GOP is voting to continue the funding of that war.Let's end this disgrace now......support our troops, but not the war.
