What you and I are paying for in Iraq

According to this Congressman: 100 million for several new housing communities, complete with roads, schools and a medical clinic; $20 million for business classes, at a cost of $10,000 per Iraqi student; $900 million for imported kerosene and diesel, even though Iraq has huge oil reserves; $54 million to study the Iraqi postal system; $10 million for prison-building consultants; $2 million for garbage trucks; $200,000 each for Iraqis in a witness protection program; $100 million for hundreds of criminal investigators; and, $400 million for two prisons, at a cost of nearly $50,000 per bed!
