I just finished reading William Gibson’s latest novel SPOOK COUNTRY today (it’s a great read btw) and it reminded me of the whole issue of the missing money that went from New York in Iraq from 2003 – 2004 and then disappeared…. $9 Billion out of $12 Billion in cash that was sent to Iraq cannot be accounted for. So I googled it and found this recent interview on Democracy Now with two investigative journalists who have dug further into the story and uncovered some amazing facts.

With this much cash up for grabs, it’s easy to see why war is good for business… for some.
