“…Congress in January 2008 established the Commission on Wartime Contracting [signed by President Bush on January 28, 2008], as part of the National Defense Authorization Act. The commission was asked ‘to study, assess and make recommendations concerning wartime contracting for the reconstruction, logistical support, and the performance of security functions in Iraq and Afghanistan.’ The commission was specifically instructed to make ‘a thorough assessment of the systemic problems identified with interagency wartime contracting, the identification of instances of waste, fraud and abuse, and ensuring accountability for those responsible.’ “
