"America has hardly even begun to repay its debt to Iraq. This is an immoral request because we didn't ask them to come to Iraq, and before they came in 2003 we didn't have all these needs."Abdul Basit, the head of Iraq's Supreme Board of Audit, an independent body that oversees Iraqi governmental expenditures, after being asked why US forces in Iraq are charged an average of $3.23 and citizens buy it for $1.36 per gallon. Last year, the US spent over $5 billion on petroleum products in Iraq. The Iraqi government is expected to capture $70 billion from oil sales in 2008, with the majority of that windfall being sent to foreign shelters.
