No, we are spending 300 million a day in Iraq how can that possibly be , when soldiers do not have what they need

Did you know that the pentagon is not audited like other government agencies and one year they could not account for ONE TRILLION dollars?
When the Bush administration asked congress for money to be spent on the war, they always stated we must support our troops – yet our troops do not have what they need, so where is the money going?
