Politics - Cost Of Iraq War Set To Rise

Ducky. Just ducky. Noah Schactman over at Wired reports that the costs of the Iraq quagmire in which we're killing and maiming so many are about one-third higher than they were last year:
In the first half of this fiscal year, the Defense Department's "average monthly obligations for contracts and pay is running about $12 billion per month, well above the $8.7 billion in FY2006," says a new report, obtained by DANGER ROOM, from the non-partisan Congressional Research Service.
And the dumbass Repignican candidates have the gall to say that the Democrats will spend too much money?
