there is no reconstruction:
gee, only 18 months gone by and nothing but jack to show but a handful of $20,000 paint jobs:
Congress approved $18 billion for Iraq reconstruction last November ... As of the end of August, less than $1 billion of the $18.4 billion allocation had been spent ... John Negroponte, US ambassador to Iraq, wants Washington to shift more than $3 billion in reconstruction funds to creating more security forces
That's just the one appropriation, most of which was grafted along with the other slush funds for corruption and war profiteering.
