"fraud, incompetence and confusion"

Audit Describes Misuse of Funds in Iraq Projects

The audit, released yesterday by the office of the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction, expands on its previous findings of fraud, incompetence and confusion as the American occupation poured money into training and rebuilding programs in 2003 and 2004.

"fraud, incompetence and confusion"

I nominate those words as the tagline for the entire Bubble Boy presidency.

Yes, I know that "mendacity" and "malice" could be in there too, but they will just have to appear in the synopsis. The tagline needs to be short, punchy, and ideally, pulled from an indirectly related text such as this article.

Read the whole thing. It's got stuff like this:

One official kept $2 million in a bathroom safe, another more than half a million dollars in an unlocked footlocker. One contractor received more than $100,000 to completely refurbish an Olympic pool but only polished the pumps; even so, local American officials certified the work as completed.
