We're doing a "heck of a job!" rebuilding Iraq.

Report: U.S. investment in Iraqi reconstruction at risk
"If these projects are typical of the quality and effectiveness of operations and maintenance performance on transitioned projects, the value of the U.S. investment in Iraq reconstruction will be at risk," said Stuart W. Bowen Jr., the special inspector general, in his report to Congress and the Bush Administration. "Unless corrective action is taken, the useful lives of those projects will be significantly shortened."

$37 billion US taxpayer dollars wasted, 914 people -- including 224 U.S. citizens -- have died while working on the U.S.-funded projects.
Poor construction, design and materials also added to the problems.
