LastDayWatchers more evidence of God Curse of the Bush/Obama Administration and expose the LIE of the so-called "success of the surge" and the Iraq "Awakening" which keep getting put to sleep!
Militants kill 23 security force members across Iraq
"Militants have killed nearly two dozen security force members in attacks across Iraq today"
The heaviest toll came in a Sunni neighborhood of Baghdad, where 16 Iraqi troops died in what appeared to be coordinated assaults"
Iraqi Insurgents Plant Qaeda Flag in Baghdad
"In a brazen late-afternoon attack in the heart of this city’s most prominent Sunni neighborhood, gunmen attacked two police checkpoints on Thursday before a series of roadside bombs detonated on police and army patrols responding to the mayhem.
After the attack — in Adhamiya, a section of Baghdad that was the site of some of the most vicious fighting of the sectarian civil war in 2006 and 2007 — the gunmen raised the black flag of Al Qaeda in Mesopotamia, according to high-ranking Iraqi Army officer"
"The violence was the latest in a series of attacks in recent weeks claimed by, or attributed to, the militant group, a largely homegrown Sunni organization. Among them were the bombing of the Trade Bank of Iraq, the robbery of the Central Bank, a suicide attack on an Arabic-language satellite news channel and the slaughter of more than 40 Awakening members, mostly former insurgents now aligned with the government, as they picked up their paychecks"
And the "plundering" grows more and more
USAID spends too much, too fast to win hearts and minds
"Those who implement USAID projects report an increasing focus on "burn rates" – a measure of how quickly money is spent. Emphasis is put on spending fast to make room for the next tranche from Congress. "It's not that there is too much money, it's that it's all spent at one time. There is no absorption capacity," says Lorenzo Delesgues, director of Integrity Watch Afghanistan in Kabul"
"Part of the problem is when you were working in the 11th century, what is the capacity of the 11th century to absorb the 60 million bucks? Especially when there are people who are looking to put a lot of that in their own pocket"
