Politics, money, and war.

Thursday, October 30


The Center for Public Integrity has released a report, Winning Contractors, on the relationship of campaign contributions to contracts awarded for reconstruction in Iraq. Gee. What a coincidence.
More than 70 American companies and individuals have won up to $8 billion in contracts for work in postwar Iraq and Afghanistan over the last two years, according to a new study by the Center for Public Integrity. Those companies donated more money to the presidential campaigns of George W. Bush—a little over $500,000—than to any other politician over the last dozen years, the Center found.
They have a great list of contractors, some of the names we haven't come across before.

Go explore the report. Totally loaded with information.
