So saith David Oliver, the former Iraqi Coalition Provisional Authority director of management and budget to the BBC last year; this week a House Committee on Government Reform hearing tried to grill both Oliver and his boss L. Paul Bremer III to clear that picture up just a little bit. Daniel Schulman at Mother Jones has more; the upshot is, the U.S. has no idea what happened to $8.8 billion "doled out by the CPA to Iraq's fledgling government ministries between October 2003 and June 2004." And it's very probable that Oliver's cynicism–what difference does it make?–is precisely correct.
