How much does $12 billion dollars weigh? 363 tons according the Congressman Henry Waxman, chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

From the 'No Fucking Joke Department," the United States Government sent $12 billion dollars, IN CASH, to Iraq is the weeks following the invasion of Iraq.

In denominations of $100 bills, the Federal Reserve loaded pallets of cash wrapped in plastic and loaded it onto military aircraft. Not counting Bush's tax cuts, it was the largest currency transfer in the history of the United States.

This is what oversight looks like and this is what happens with the Republicans look the other way. This incident is probably the tip of the iceberg and who knows what else is to come? These past six years have been the most scandal-ridden for the White House and Congress. The GOP pissed away six years of time and thousands of lives on their failed neo-con fantasies.

Clinton/Gore left the nation, in its best shape EVER, to the BushCo and they have utterly ruined the economy and 60 years of good will and foreign policy built since the end of the Second World War.

President Harry S. Truman gave us the Berlin Airlift, George W. Bush gave us the U.S. Mint Airlift.



Holy Benjamins batman

... the largest currency transfer in the history of the United States.


Didn't any of those knuckle heads have a grandmother who told them never to send cash? yeah, I know I'm giving them WAAAAYYY to much credit. This ain't a case of too much "stupid". It's a case of too many THEIVES guarding the treasury.

"They took all the trees and put them in a tree museum Then they charged the people a dollar 'n a half just to see 'em. Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got till it's gone? They paved paradise and put up a parking lot."
