Ooops, Mortar Shell Damages Wall and People in Iraq in Supposedly Blast-Resistant EMBASSY

U.S. Embassy Complex under construction in Baghdad's Green Zone

Which embassy? You know, the one that is costing US Taxpayers $592 MILLION dollars, the one that will be a symbol of US Occupation in Iraq if you vote for Clinton, Obama or Edwards, and is massively corrupt. How corrupt? Well, now there's a CRIMINAL investigation into the building of it. Becuase the State Department contractor tried to cover it up.

A mortar shell smashed into the hulking new U.S. Embassy that's under construction in Baghdad last May, damaging a wall and causing minor injuries to people inside the building. It also exposed enormous problems in the management of what's become a $592 million government construction project.

The State Department contractor in charge of the project, James L. Golden, attempted to alter the scene of the blast, according to government officials familiar with the incident. The State Department inspector general prevented Department officials from investigating the incident, according to interviews and documents....

— Aspects of the embassy's construction are the subject of at least one U.S. government criminal investigation, according to officials in Congress and the administration. They spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the matter and declined to divulge more details for publication.

— In order to rush the project, the long-time head of OBO, retired Army Maj. Gen. Charles Williams, signed a waiver in July 2005 allowing a sole-source contract to be awarded to First Kuwaiti.
