More deception from the Bush administration:
The State Department agency in charge of $1.4 billion in reconstruction money bq. In Iraq used an accounting shell game to hide ballooning cost overruns on its projects there and knowingly withheld information on schedule delays from Congress, a federal audit released late Friday has found.

One of the contractors responsible the cost overruns is well connected to the Bush administration: Bechtel.
