I have to agree. We spend 4 times as much on contractors as we do on soldiers in Iraq. And we spend as much as 100 times on contractors in Iraq as on the war against Al Qaeda.
The Bush administration is an admitted failure in the war against Al Qaeda, and is marred by the corruption of Blackwater and Halliburton. Given this, I don't truly understand how someone can say they support Bush and our troops at the same time.
The Office of Management and Budget, President Bush's administrative arm, has shot down a service plan to add five active-duty generals who would oversee purchasing and monitor contractor performance
MORE OF THE SAME.
