Pentagon: American taxpayer dollars at risk of fraud, waste, and abuse

http://www.theamericanconservative.com

The Office of the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction (SIGIR) released its final major audit over the weekend, delivering quite a bottom line: it cannot say how much U.S taxpayers lost while trying to rebuild Iraq, but it was a lot. The U.S. government Iraq relief and reconstruction program had serious internal control weaknesses that put billions of American taxpayer dollars at risk of fraud, waste, and abuse. The precise amount lost to fraud and waste may never be known, but SIGIR’s audits and investigations have demonstrated that the amount could be substantial.

Mums refund child support

http://www.themercury.com.au

Angry women's groups said last night that it would be the children at the centre of the disputes who would suffer most if money were paid back.

In each case the duped men were able to prove beyond doubt in the courts they were not the fathers using DNA paternity testing.

In the biggest case, Queensland man Ken Rodgers obtained orders for the repayment of $60,000 after making child support contributions over a decade to a woman who refused to even send him a photograph of his alleged child.

Making mothers pay back child support was last night condemned by women's groups.

Especially since they had to run it anyway and it is spec’ed appropriately. He didn’t know.

There Are More Slaves Today Than at Any Time in Human History

http://www.alternet.org

I want to be very clear what I mean when I say the word slavery. If you look it up in Webster's dictionary, the first definition is "drudgery or toil." It's become a metaphor for undue hardship, because we assume that once you legally abolish something, it no longer exists. But as a matter of reality for up to 27 million people in the world, slaves are those forced to work, held through fraud, under threat of violence, for no pay beyond subsistence. It's a very spare definition.
