The Guardian on Bremer’s Missing $8.8 Billion

Anyone who’s read Joseph Heller’s Catch-22 will remember Milo Minderbinder, the entrepreneurial genius who found, in the chaos and the massive scale of war, the perfect opportunity to become very, very rich. With all that money flying around, and no one really in charge of keeping track of it, making large amounts of it flow in a particular direction turns out to be not so hard (at least for someone like Minderbinder).

It sounds like a lot of the same thing was going on in Iraq in the early days of the US occupation. This article is fairly old, but I found it interesting: From The Guardian: So, Mr Bremer, where did all the money go?
