The Actual Cost of the War

Linda Bilmes of the Kennedy School at Harvard and Joseph E. Stiglitz of Columbia have analyzed the economics of the war in Iraq. Their result: the total cost of the war will run $1 trillion or more.

Only $1 billion?

Heck, let's take out the entire Axis of Evil. :-)

Oops. That's one trillion, not one billion. You have a sharp eye for figures. Thanks

I thought the report said the cost would be up to $2 trillion. Even $1 trillion is about $90 billion more than BushCo estimated it would cost in its more lucid moments.

Anyway, bring on the tax cuts !

Jason, make that $900 billion more. You left off a zero. We all seem to be having trouble with the numbers.
