More Confusion Over Lost Money

A couple of days ago, I did a piece on the government losing 40 billion dollars cash. http://thecivillibertarian.blogspot.com/2011/10/government-completely-loses-40-billion.html

Now in case you weren't confused enough by that blog and supporting news story- comes this masterful gem, courtesy of Yahoo! http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/envoy/once-feared-lost-now-accounted-iraq-inspector-says-153935856.html

Today, this story states, they have found 6.6 billion worth of lost money which now they are claiming- was never lost in the first place. As you read the story, you cannot discern whether or not this money was part of the other missing 40 billion. Was this a separate payment? Was this story written to make headline readers think they found all of that missing money?

I'll tell you this much. Whoever writes this crap needs to find a job wherein they can verify sources, corroborate sources, or be of some use to readers. That means you Laura Rozen. Really.
