The U.S. occu­pa­tion aut­hority in Iraq was unable to keep track of nearly $9 bil­lion it trans­ferred to govern­ment mini­stries, which lacked finan­cial con­trols, security, com­mu­ni­ca­tions and adequate staff, an ins­pec­tor gene­ral has found.

The U.S. offi­ci­als relied on Iraqi audit agen­cies to account for the funds but those offices were not even func­tioning when the funds were trans­ferred between Octo­ber 2003 and June 2004, accor­ding to an audit by a spec­ial U.S. ins­pec­tor gene­ral. (AP)
