U.S. Funds Going to Iraqi Insurgents

"Iraq's deadly insurgent groups have financed their war against U.S. troops in part with hundreds of thousands of dollars in U.S. rebuilding funds that they've extorted from Iraqi contractors in Anbar province.The payments, in return for the insurgents' allowing supplies to move and construction work to begin, have taken place since the earliest projects in 2003, Iraqi contractors, politicians and interpreters involved with reconstruction efforts said."

So, in essence, we are funding the "terrorists." We are railing against Syria and Iran, but we are doing it just as bad if not worse.
