I have not had an opportunity to read a letter from the Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. I have just completed a visit to Afghanistan and am en route to Baghdad for the remainder of September.What???
In this trip and throughout my term as Inspector General, I have been committed to discharging my statutory responsibilities under the Inspector General Act of 1978 to the best of my ability and without regard for personal interest.
In particular, I made one of my best investigators available to help Assistant U.S. Attorneys in North Carolina in their investigation into alleged smuggling of weapons into Iraq by a contractor.
