You remember Matthew Lesko, that guy on TV in the purple suit with question marks all over it who used to yell from the steps of the Capitol building about his amazing programs to make free money off the federal government? Get $100,000 to write a book! Yadda, etc. I never bought his book because, you know, I'm not a sucker, and I've just learned I made the right choice. The cat is out of the bag and Matthew Lesko isn't holding all of the power for once in my life. Forget going to the trouble of writing a book or filling out all those tedious grant applications. The real money's in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The Associated Press reports this morning about a report (which is their way) issued by the Wartime Contracting Commission over the lack of federal oversight on the tens, nay hundreds, of billions of dollars being thrown at the problem. Turns out, there's no oversight at all.
