'Systemic corruption in Iraq'
As if all the violence in Iraq wasn't horrifying enough, now the U.S. Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction (SIGIR) has released a report finding that corruption and bribery in Iraq are rampant.
On Sunday, The McLaughlin Group led their show with a segment on "systemic corruption in Iraq," spotlighting the recent SIGIR report.
Some scandalous points:
"There have been 1,400 criminal cases involving $5 billion."
"One-third of Iraqis reported that they have paid bribes for products or services this year."So, this is what democracy looks like?
