Yeah, it's Tom Coburn. Yet another year another "report".
All and all, an interesting read.
Found this interesting...
34) U.S. Iraqi police training program burns through hundreds of millions of dollars, crashes in flames – (Department of State) $400.2 millionOffered without further comment.
Potentially a “bottomless pit” is how the Special Inspector General for Iraq (SIGIR) described a key State Department’s security program. After receiving authority over the program from the U.S. military, the Department of State (DOS) has bungled planning and implementation of the program. Because of the high security costs of working in Iraq, most of the program’s support costs are spent on security, not on the provision of police training. Only six percent of the program’s budget goes to police training services. And, what training the State Department has provided so far has largely failed to meet the Iraqis’ needs.
Again, an interesting read.
