Stealing Iraqi Oil --- liberating Iraq

CBS/60 Minutes noted that nearly $9 billion was totally unaccounted for in the "reconstruction" of Iraq. Custer Battles was found guilty for $3 million of this in fraud. To put this in perspective, imagine that $9,000 had been stolen. The whereabouts of $3 worth of that total has now been located. Now what about the missing 99.9% of the money.

Also, since much of the missing money was from Iraqi government oil revenues, it looks like this war really was about stealing Iraq's oil (albeit circuitously.)

"Liberating Iraq" was Bush code for liberating Iraqis from their oil.
