War profiteering and cronyism

Couldn’t the lapdog media in the US have done this?  It took an investigation by the BBC to find out that an estimated $23 BILLION has been lost, stolen, or “merely” not accounted for in Iraq. To date, no major US contractor has been indicted for these stunning abuses.

Why can’t we hear about this in the US?  Because we have a gagging order that prevents discussion of it. According to the BBC, “While George Bush remains in the White House, it is unlikely the gagging orders will be lifted.”
