It is probably good that none of the shuttle astronauts survived either of the explosions, which killed them all, as NASA would probably have been required to bill them for one (1) hand-built, orbital-retry vehicle, model No. 1.....bit pricey to replace on an astronauts salary, what with ski masks and Depends to buy...

Right, wrong or indifferent on how you view war, conflict, police actions or liberations, the folks who stand-to ought to get a little slack when the Pentagon finds out that they accidently broke a $700 porta-potty..

Here's one for ya:

To fund a new Iraqi economy and government after the March 2003 invasion, the U.S. Federal Reserve shipped 484 pallets of shrink-wrapped U.S. currency, weighing 363 tons, totaling more than $4 billion, and, according to a House of Representatives committee staff report in February, most of the cash was either haphazardly disbursed or distributed to proper channels but with little follow-up tracking. By March 2007, The Times of London found bank records revealing, for instance, that two unremarkable Baghdad small-business men (appointed to the defense ministry) eventually deposited over $1 billion in private accounts in Jordan, and that U.S. efforts to buy state-of-the-art equipment for the Iraqi army were seriously undermined because middlemen purchased only cheap, obsolete Polish munitions and pocketed the savings.
