An investigative committee released a report this week estimating that the US Government has lost as much as $60 billion to waste, fraud and corruption in Iraq and Afghanistan over the past decade.

Dick Cheney's former company, Haliburton, was the biggest recipient of war contracts.

Hi Greg....It's totally ridiculous. There is so much infrastructure here in the USA that is need of repair and we don't have the money for it and all Congress does is battle over spending, but the Republicans never want to cut the costs on the war so we could rebuild the roads, bridges and schools that are falling apart. Sickening...Bill
