Laura Bush's pet Iraq project: a mismanaged failure

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Here's one of those projects that the Bush crew was pushing as the underreported good news from Iraq. It was a particular favorite of Laura Bush. In reality, it's another Iraqi disaster:

Now it becomes the latest in a series of American taxpayer-financed health projects in Iraq to face overruns, delays and cancellations. Earlier this year, the Army Corps of Engineers canceled more than $300 million in contracts held by Parsons, another American contractor, to build and refurbish hospitals and clinics across Iraq.
Bechtel made a lot of money from the project. The Iraqis accused that company of serious mismanagement. The Iraqis could figure that out, but not the U.S. government.

Maybe Laura should pay a "surprise visit" to her pet project to see what happened.
