Bush Got $500,000 From Companies That Got Contracts, Study Finds

Date: October 31, 2003
Authors: Edmund L. Andrews and Elizabeth Becker
QUOTE: The overwhelming majority of government contracts for billions of dollars of reconstruction work in Iraq and Afghanistan went to companies run by executives who were heavy political contributors to both political parties.

ABSTRACT: The first in-depth and independent study of the US government's handling of contracts for Iraq and Afghanistan reconstruction projects, done by The Center for Public Integrity, supports criticism that companies with close political ties have received almost all the contracts, and that the bidding process has not been open and transparent as promised. The Bush administration disputes the study's accuracy and assessments.
