That doesn't mean I am not angry and haven't sent this to the networks and asked them why haven't they run this story but I am no longer shocked by anything I hear the BCS doing or having any part of...I was going to add this to the Weekly (C)Wrap UP! tomorrow but this story is so incredulous I had to give it it's own post...From Crooks & Liars:
Henry Waxman held oversight hearings on the construction of the US Embassy in Iraq. To say that the testimony coming out is explosive and damning to the State Department is putting it mildly.
The Oversight Committee (held) a hearing, “Allegations of Waste, Fraud, and Abuse at the New U.S. Embassy in Iraq.” The hearing will examine the performance of the State Department and its contractors in the construction of the new $600 million U.S. embassy in Baghdad. The Committee will be reviewing questions regarding the embassy compound construction as well as allegations of labor abuse through improper contracting practices.

How much more corruption and scandals and murder and lies and bullshit excuses are we going to take?! Now what needs to happen is to find the person that hired or "gave" the contract to first Kuwait and grill his ass, then whoever the contractor (Haliburton or Bechtel) and hold them accountable...
This is no longer unbelievable, it just disgusting and to put it mildly outrageous...You can go to to Nancy Pelosi's youtube page and see the best parts of the whole hearing...I remember when the Abramoff scandal broke and James Carvelle was on the Today Show and he said then the depths of the GOP scandals went all the way to the top! Time to cut off the head so the body will die!
