Senator Ted Kennedy (from a CNN article):

'As for the administration's current policy in Iraq, Kennedy called it "adrift."'

'He said Bush officials had failed to account for $1.5 billion of the $4 billion the war costs each month, citing a recent report by the Congressional Budget Office.'

'"My belief is this money is being shuffled all around to these political leaders in all parts of the world, bribing them to send in troops," he told the AP.'

And the Republican response:

'"The senator's comments reflect the tired old soft-on-defense attitude of the Democratic Party," the Republican official told CNN, speaking on condition of anonymity.'

'"And the American people are thankful for a strong and decisive leader in President Bush who isn't afraid to make tough decisions."'

Wars are a financial undertaking, and if what Senator Kennedy is saying is true than this one is being mismangaged on the same level as Enron and Worldcom were mismanaged. The response from an anonymous Republic "official" is to trot out the dead horse of Democrats being "soft" on defense. If so, we'd rather have a fully-funded "soft" policy in Iraq than one where over 18 billion dollars a year go unaccounted. That's quite alot of oil Iraq has to sell to pay for bribes so the U.S. can bring in more troops because its own forces in Iraq are too "soft".
