The Bush Reconstruction "Surge"

This article statistically digs into the reconstruction spending in Iraq since 2003, and makes some comment on the PRT and CERP approach for creating non-sustainable work. It's conclusion comes back to much of the criticism yesterday's article on President Bush's proposed 1 billion USD humanitarian surge- "If the administration wanted to make a difference, the Iraq reconstruction funds would have to be much larger. Even then, given the chaos in Iraq, a large package of support would probably also be wasted."
