550 Million U.S. Taxpayer Dollars Spent On “Operations” in Iraq, June 16 – August 28
Iraq has become a money pit but I can only imagine the tiny fraction of Americans who will come to know this fact (thanks “liberal media!”):
WASHINGTON — Since June 16 when US President Barack Obama first sent several dozen US troops to Iraq to begin assessing the state of the country’s Army, the United States has spent around $500 million on operations there.
Briefing reporters on Friday, Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby said the price tag has run on average about $7.5 million per day since June, sometimes less and sometimes more. But taking that average number, that would put the US price tag at $550 million through Aug. 28.
