Who will be brought to account for Iraq's war?
By Paul Krugman
NY TIMES NEWS SERVICE , New York
Monday, Jul 26, 2004,Page 9

Accountability is important. The nation will be ill-served if officials who didn't do all they could to prevent a terrorist attack, or led the nation into an unnecessary war, manage to shift the blame to someone else.

But those weren't the only big mistakes of the last few years. Will anyone be held accountable for the mishandling of postwar Iraq?

Last month we learned that the US, while it has spent vast sums on the war in Iraq, has so far provided almost no aid. Of US$18.4 billion in reconstruction funds approved by Congress, only US$400 million has been disbursed.
