Money intended for Iraq’s reconstruction is being used to redecorate the homes of US facilitators. If this is what a Lieutenant Colonel gets, imagine what Dick Cheney’s house looks like!

She is charged with receiving cash bribes of $80,000 to $100,000, a Cadillac Escalade, a trove of illegal weaponry and other items for steering construction jobs to an American contractor in Iraq.

Some of the cash, intended for projects like a library in the holy city of Karbala and an Iraqi police academy south of Baghdad, paid for a new hot tub and a deck for Colonel Harrison’s home in Trenton, according to the federal affidavit.
