Ex-Army aide tells of blocking money to Iraq contractor

THIS STORY really gets at the crux of OUR MONEY going down a rat-hole!

Army auditors had determined that KBR lacked credible data or records for more than $1 billion in spending, so Smith refused to sign off on the payments.

"They had a gigantic amount of costs they couldn't justify," he said. "Ultimately, the money that was going to KBR was money being taken away from the troops, and I wasn't going to do that."

So what's the Army do? THEY FIRE HIS ASS! REMEMBER "you don't go to war with the army you wish you had, you go to war with the criminals you know you have" RUMSFELD!

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
