U.S. Funds Went To Iraqi Militias
WASHINGTON [MENL] -- The United States has determined that hundreds of
millions of dollars in government funding was relayed to militias in Iraq.
A U.S. government report asserted that 10 percent of $4 billion in
relief and reconstruction aid was siphoned to unidentified Iraqi militias,
including tribal groups. The report, quoting U.S. commanders, said the money
was meant to avoid attacks on American and Iraqi employees of the
Commander's Emergency Response Program.
