    The contractors were supposed to build a certain number of clinics.  The built less than half of the number, but billed taxpayers for all of them.  Thus, there are few clinics to staff.

      if they had built the clinics, how were they staffing them? It didn't take an on site inspection to figure this out; a beancounter in DC should have been able to spot this.

      Besides, the Arab press has covered this for a couple of years and last year al Jazeer ran a report on the new Iraqi schools where the "headmaster" showed the building after Haliburton left: roofless, doorless, windowless, with jumbles of desks and tables piled into corners but all the walls had a fresh shiny coat of whitewash.

      No wonder we look like world class rubes to the rest of the world.
