Commission On Wartime Contracting
Hold on to your horses, because the Democrats have named the people who will lead the examination of government contracts for Iraq and Afghanistan.
It could get ugly, folks.
Sen. Jim Webb just announced that a former Defense Contract Audit Agency official, a noted contracting law professor, the first inspector general at the Department of Homeland Security and a veteran staffer on Capitol Hill will lead the group.
Four others are to be named, with input from President Bush.
"Established as the result of legislation introduced by Senators Jim Webb (D-VA) and Claire McCaskill (D-MO) last spring and signed into law January 28, 2008, the Commission is charged with addressing the systemic problems associated with the federal government's wartime-support, reconstruction, and private security contracts in Iraq and Afghanistan," Webb's announcement said.
"This Commission was inspired by the work of the "Truman Committee," which conducted hundreds of hearings and investigations into government waste during and after World War II at an estimated savings of more than $178 billion (in today's dollars) to the American taxpayer."
