BUSH APPOINTED PARTISANS AND CRONIES IN IRAQ

http://daily.misleader.org/ctt.asp?u=1288388&l=44828

The Bush Administration publicly claims that it is pursuing "independent and objective oversight"[1] of taxpayer money in Iraq. Yet even as Halliburton overcharges for services in Iraq, its top auditor last week refused to admonish the company, instead offering a justification for further taxpayer rip offs.[2] But according to a new report, this should be no surprise: the President specifically appointed auditors, investigators and budget officials based on their partisan and corporate ties -- instead of their political independence and experience.

As documented in a new American Prospect article,[3] the President appointed a Pentagon Inspector General and a Coalition Provisional Authority Inspector General with deep Republican Party ties -- despite those offices requiring nonpartisan leadership to oversee taxpayer dollars. Similarly, the Bush Administration appointed a Bush campaign donor whose law firm represented construction contractors to run the budget office that oversees Iraqi reconstruction.
