BBC: $23 Billion Wasted in Iraq

Maine Owl spots a new BBC report about the astronomical toll of waste, fraud and abuse in Iraq war contracting.

Back in 2003, Sen. Collins ignored pleas from many--including Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT)--to investigate war contracting. And while the true cost of her inaction is hard to quantify, the BBC number gives us somewhere to start.

Memo to the Maine press: Keeping your head down to protect your party and the President is a lot of things. But it ain't centrist.
