When Bush took over in 2000, the national debt was $5,674
billion. However, since Sept. 29, 2006, the debt has increased by $1.6 billion

contracts. “Cost plus,” with no incentive to save; U.S.
companies charged millions for what Iraqi companies would do for thousands; U.S. contract
workers paid $60,000 and far more. Money unaccounted for: $18 billion.

Christian Miller, in his book, Blood Money: Wasted Billions, Lost
Lives, and Corporate Greed in Iraq,
contractors boasted they could steal the taxpayers blind; it was “open season”
on your money.
