ATTA BOY In IraqScandal

Whilst Oil for Food is getting some attention at the sub-commitee level in some undisclosed location in Washington this week, it seems people have completely forgotten about the ATTA BOY in Iraq scandal. The ATTA BOY In Iraq Or American Taxes To American Businesses Over Yonder in Iraq Scandal hasn't gotten much play at all. Al Franken over at the Huffington post lets us know why. It seems the $8.8 billion dollar magic trick just isn't as important to American Tax Payers as a $10 billion UN scandal. While 8.8 billion is completely and totally 100% American tax dollars, the $10 billion is collective, around the world tax dollars which probablty ammount to less than the $8.8 billion the US can loose all on its own.

So while we are just nuttily funneling American Tax payer dollars into Iraq, how about a little jursidiction over where that money goes? After all, shouldn't the tax payers money be treated equally if not more judiciously than United Nations' money?
