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.

Imagine if armed Chinese troops were in texas

http://www.youtube.com

Great video from Revolution PAC. Sharing what many FTL listeners have mentioned, what if another nation set up a military base in the united states. What if they patrolled our streets, armed?
