    Bush's appeal to raise cash for rebuilding in Iraq raises just £337

    According to this article, from today's Observer, an appeal by Bush to raise funds for rebuilding Iraq has raised only £337:

    This coincides with concern over the increasing cost of the war. More than $30 billion has been appropriated for the reconstruction. Initially, America's overseas aid agency, USaid, expected it to cost taxpayers no more than $1.7bn, but it is now asking the public if they want to contribute even more. It is understood to be the first time that a US government has made an appeal to taxpayers for foreign aid money. Contributors have no way of knowing who will receive their donations or even where they may go, after officials said details had be kept secret for security reasons.
    No wonder people are reluctant to contribute. See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts
