Congressional Oversight Hearings

The oversight committee I wrote about recently kicks off its hearings tomorrow with former Coalition Provisional Authority administrator Paul Bremer, who will be testifying for the first time since leaving that position. According to the committee:
He will answer questions about an audit report issued in 2005 by the Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction that concluded that more than $8.8 billion in cash was disbursed without adequate financial controls. Ambassador Bremer will also be asked to respond to allegations that the CPA filled positions with unqualified staff who were politically connected.
And then, that Special Inspector General himself, Stuart Bowen, will testify.

The current Coordinator for Economic Transition in Iraq was also invited, but the State Department is refusing to allow him to testify.
