Our Tax Dollars at Work

CANOE -- CNEWS - Weird News: Taxpayers foot the tab for lost money in Iraq: "WASHINGTON - Say you misplaced $185,481 somewhere? Just expense it - Iraq style!

A U.S. contractor hired to teach Iraqis about good government physically lost that amount in cash, then claimed the loss as 'an expense.'

And the U.S. government not only covered the loss, but paid the contractor tens of thousands of dollars more in special fees for overhead and other costs relating to the missing money."
