"Approximately $6.6 billion in cash was likely stolen after being flown to Iraq during the months that followed the U.S.-led invasion, Pentagon officials said recently. Stuart Bowen, the U.S. Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction, told The Los Angeles Times that the sum just might be 'the largest theft of funds in national history.' The cash was part of a series of shipments totaling more than $12 billion, taken largely from the U.N. 'oil-for-food' program and the sales of Iraqi oil." [editor's note: Hell, the US government itself steals more than that every day! - TLK] (06/13/11)
