More than $100 billion in contracts have been awarded for work in Iraq and Afghanistan in the last five years.
"This sends the message that if you're going to do waste, fraud and abuse, don't do it at home, do it abroad," Rep. Peter Welch (D-VT) told the Washington Post in Thursday's papers. "This was slipped in at the last minute. . . . It's obviously something you can't justify in any way, and there's no answer to why you'd allow this to occur abroad any more than you'd allow it to occur domestically. There is a question as to how and why the change was made, and we don't know the answer." [The rest of the story]
After reading the hole story I'm really to shocked to reply. Please discuss, I may pop in latter when I don't feel sick to my *******.
BTW: This was done by U.S. traitors who work in our gov, who have ties to these companies that could/can make monies out of 'fraud abroad'!
(don't laugh, it's your money they are stealing)
