lack of progress in Iraq reconstruction.
Aid agency hid Iraq costs, audit says
>> The U.S. State Department agency in charge of $1.4 billion in reconstruction money in Iraq used an accounting shell game to hide ballooning cost overruns on its projects in Iraq and knowingly withheld information on schedule delays from Congress, according to a federal audit.
The agency hid construction overruns by listing them as overhead or administrative costs, according to the audit, which was released late Friday and written by the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction, an independent office that reports to Congress, the Pentagon and the State Department. <<
Are criminal charges forthcoming? And if not, why not?
