14% Completion Rate on Iraq Cost-Plus Ks

Although I'd found the WaPo piece waiting in my inbox the morning, I'll send you to TBogg for the image. 14% completion rate ... "Heck of a Job Bushie!' You may recall that Bechtel, Fluor, Louis Berger Group, Parsons and Halliburton's Kellogg, Brown & Root, were privately selected by USAID under an exemption from normal federal procurement regulations. One excuse given was limiting competition for contracts made sense in that open bidding would "impair foreign aid by slowing down operations". Paul Wolfowitz also needs some more scorn. Maybe he could cough up some money at The World Bank? Peace ... or War!
