"The audit, released by the office of the Special Inspector-General for Iraq Reconstruction, expands on its previous findings of fraud, incompetence and confusion as the US occupation poured money into training and rebuilding programs in 2003 and 2004.
Agents from the Inspector-General's office found that the living and working quarters of US occupation officials were awash with shrink-wrapped stacks of $US100 bills, colloquially known as "bricks".
One official kept $US2 million in a bathroom safe, another more than $US500,000 in an unlocked locker. One contractor received more than $US100,000 to completely refurbish an Olympic pool but only polished the pumps; even so, local US officials certified the work as completed."
