Reconstruction dollars for Iraq - Oversight? Overdue!

Congress has Paul Bremer, former Administrator under the Bush Administration from 2003-2004, giving testimony on what happened to the Billions of dollars of taxpayer money set aside for reconstruction in Iraq. It appears there were only 2 people with oversight roles assigned by our government and obviously they couldn't and didn't do much. So it appears we are looking at whom to blame for the lost money. This is the first time any oversight has been done by the Congress. The difference being that now there is a Democratic majority in charge in Congress. Before it was the Republicans in charge and they held no hearings. So maybe we should stop going back to folks like Paul Bremer and Stuart Bowen, the Special Inspector General for Reconstruction in Iraq, and start going after those Republicans who in Congress were in charge and they neglected their responsibility. I know, many Republicans were replaced in the last election. The problem is that 2/3rds of the Republicans who were in charge are still in Congress!
