You Can’t Win a War When Greed is at its Heart

There was a great piece on Fresh Air today which featured an interview with the author of a new book about the Iraq War.

For years federal auditors have reported that millions of American dollars have been wasted or are unaccounted for in the effort to rebuild and stabilize Iraq.  State Department employee Peter Van Buren gives a ground-level account of that waste and corruption in his book, We Meant Well – How I Helped Lose the Battle for the Hearts and Minds off the Iraqi People.

The interview is loads of informative.
