Daniel Drezner exposes the Center for Public "Integrity" as distorting the facts...

"A new report by the Center for Public Integrity attempts to prove something that many people simply assume to be true: that the Bush administration has strongly favored cronies and campaign contributors in awarding reconstruction contracts for Iraq and Afghanistan. The CPI devoted six months to research and filed more than 70 Freedom of Information Act requests and appeals to get to the bottom of the story. The conclusion of the report, 'Windfalls of War,' is that a clear quid pro quo exists between government procurement and campaign contributions to George W. Bush. Charles Lewis, the group's executive director, released a statement arguing that the report reveals 'a stench of political favoritism and cronyism surrounding the contracting process in both Iraq and Afghanistan.'

There's just one problem: The CPI has no evidence to support its allegations. "
Yeah it's just one problem but quite a big one...
