Your tax dollars go missing

An investigation by the British Broadcasting Corp. estimates that $23 BILLION has been lost, stolen or improperly accounted for in the war in Iraq.

Most of that missing money came from U.S. taxpayers, but we don't get to hear about it because of gag orders in place in 70 different lawsuits against contractors in Iraq. Much of the money went to corporations like Halliburton through no-bid contracts.

War profiteering? You bet your ass.

Think how many homes lost to Hurricane Katrina could've been rebuilt with $23 billion.
