Where did the money go?

A fantastic story in the Guardian:

So, Mr Bremer, where did all the money go?

At the end of the Iraq war, vast sums of money were made available to the US-led provisional authorities, headed by Paul Bremer, to spend on rebuilding the country. By the time Bremer left the post eight months later, $8.8bn of that money had disappeared.

Are you kidding me? Almost NINE BILLION?

This is either staggering incompetence or unimaginable corruption. Either way, the blood is on the hands of the United States.
