    As this happened from 2004 to 2007, I don't think this has anything to do with Obama.

    And this is not the first time we hear of miss-management.. do they never learn?

    Considering the billions.. well trillions the US has spent on getting rid of Saddam.. the 6 to 12 billion he skimmed off the oil for food program seem a freaking bargain now.
    Problem is the money from the oil-for-food program, that specific bit of massive corruption very well could have had Saddam thinking he had allies that would have prevented war.

    So, you can add the cost of American lives and all the treasure associated due to UN Oil-for-Food Corruption.

    The UN is awash in the blood of our men because they failed to do the job the place was set up for.

    BTW... Something you glossed over...
    The US military said the funds were not necessarily missing, but that spending records might have been archived.
    ...but let's say it's gone; the above still applies... and...

    ... Just wait until Obi-Kare is on the same level of corruption and incompetence as the EU socialist medical schemes... or our Social Security, or Medicare or Medicaid...

    To use your words...

    ...this is not the first time we hear of miss-management.. do they never learn?
    But it's not about learning is it? It's about power and control, not the greatest good for the greatest number.
