War Contractors' Criminality Surging Under Obama's Administration
According to Huffington Post today:
The chairmen of the bipartisan Commission on Wartime Contracting decried on Monday a federal system that has allowed contractors in Iraq and Afghanistan to commit fraud -- then get hired again and again.
All of this being HEIGHTENED under OBAMA'S administration.
And you libs out there thought this guy was gonna do away with the Bush-era criminality. You know you were WRONG!...just admit it! Some of us Bush zombies had to admit to Bush being a criminal--after we did our research, of course--so just admit that this guy serves the same puppet masters so we can all SHATER the Left-Right Paradigm (Alex Jones' coined phrase) and beat this NWO together.
Obama is no more a compassionate lib that was Bush a "compassionate conservative." Death, prolongation of wars, corruption, lies, bailouts, etc. are all continually occurring with Obama--and more so that what was happening under Bush!
The HP also reports:
And most controversially, the report said the extensive use of private security contractors -- which has surged under President Barack Obama -- raises use-of-force issues and creates a gap in legal accountability...
In his remarks at Monday's hearing, Scott Amey, general counsel for the nonprofit watchdog group Project on Government Oversight (POGO), testified that "contract award dollars have increased from approximately $200 billion in fiscal year 2000 to over $535 billion in fiscal year 2010." Meanwhile, however, "contract administration and oversight have decreased because the acquisition workforce is stretched thin," he said.
Since 2002, POGO has maintained a Federal Contract Misconduct Database, which served as the model for the government-created Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS), due to become publicly available starting in April.
Witnesses at Monday's hearing said, however, that the federal database doesn't adequately record contractors' past performance.
As it happens, the Obama administration recently caved to pressure from contractors and won't be making that past performance data available publicly.
