Recent GAO report

Seth Borenstein, in a recent news collumn, sums up the recent report by the General Accounting Office--a congressional investigative arm. The 105-page report came to the following findings:

  • In 13 of Iraq's 18 provinces, electricity is available fewer hours than before the war.
  • Most of the money pledged to rebuild Iraq has thus far gone to run Iraq's ministry operations.
  • The country's court system is more clogged than before the war.
  • The new Iraqi civil defense and security units are suffering mass desertions.
  • Significant insurgent attacks are sky-rocketing.

In addition, a recent CPA IG report has highlighted serious management difficulties at the CPA.
