Hrrrrgh!!!

Of $20 billion in oil revenues handled by the CPA, $9 billion is missing.

I look forward to a Simone Ledeen article at NRO explaining what the bloody hell has happened.

I think we do have to understand that the situation out there is difficult (though if this is the case, it does make some of the crowing over how the UN allegedly can't handle accountability somewhat hollow). But for the average Iraqi reading this - presumably in the hours when power cuts have not knocked out his lighting - it must be extremely annoying to put it mildly. And for the insurgents it's a propaganda dream.

Simone can't write an article about this topic at present...but as soon as she can, she will.
