WASHINGTON (AFP) - Between five million and 15 million dollars worth of oil a day is accounted for in Iraq and could have been siphoned off through corruption or smuggling, The New York Times reported Saturday.
Citing a draft US government report it gained access to, the newspaper said the amounts relate to between 100,000 and 300,000 barrels a day of IraqÂs declared oil production over the past four years.
The report does not give a final conclusion on what happened to the missing fraction of the roughly two million barrels pumped by Iraq each day, the paper said.
See, Iran doesn't need to be funding the insurgents or al Qaeda!!!
They have an independent source of income thanks to our poor planning and inability to secure the country!!
