VOICE-OVER SCRIPT:

IT IS A DISPIRITING SYMBOL OF AMERICAN WASTE IN IRAQ. YEARS AFTER THE U.S. FINISHED BUILDING IT, THIS WASTE WATER TREATMENT PLANT IN THE FORMER AL-QAIDA STRONGHOLD OF FALLUJAH IS A PICTURE OF NEGLECT, WON'T EVEN BE USED UNTIL NEXT YEAR AND WILL ONLY SERVE A FRACTION OF THE AREA'S RESIDENTS.

SOUNDBITE: Stuart Bowen/Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction

"Ultimately this is a project that cost 3 times as much as expected, over $100 million."

IN HIS FINAL REPORT TO CONGRESS THIS WEEK, THE TOP AMERICAN WATCHDOG LOOKING AT THE MONEY SPENT REBUILDING IRAQ HAS A STARK CONCLUSION: 60 BILLION DOLLARS POURED INTO IRAQ, WITH NOT ENOUGH TO SHOW FOR IT.

STUART BOWEN'S REPORT IS FULL OF EXAMPLES, LIKE THE KHAN BANI SA'AD PRISON IN DIYALA PROVINCE, LEFT UNFINISHED IN 2007 WHEN THE AREA SIMPLY GOT TOO VIOLENT.

SOUNDBITE: Stuart Bowen/Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction

"What was there was turned over to the Iraqis. They'll never do anything with it. It's just essentially today a pile of rubble, unfinished buildings. $40 million in taxpayer money wasted, completely wasted."

THERE WERE SUCCESSES, LIKE A WATER TREATMENT PLANT IN NORTHERN IRAQ

BUT BOWEN SAYS HIS INTERVIEWS WITH PRIME MINISTER NOURI AL-MALIKI AND OTHER IRAQI OFFICIALS MADE CLEAR THEIR DISAPPOINTMENT WITH THE REBUILDING EFFORT, WITH MANY IRAQIS STILL LIVING IN POVERTY, AND FEW HAVING RELIABLE ELECTRICITY OR CLEAN WATER.

SOUNDBITE: Stuart Bowen/Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction

"As he said, when you spend $55 billion, we ought to have seen more than we see."

BOWEN SAYS IN TOO MANY CASES, THE US BUILT THINGS THE IRAQIS JUST DID NOT WANT OR NEED, AND THE BLAME IN PART RESTS WITH AMERICAN OFFICIALS FOR NOT DOING A BETTER JOB OF COORDINATING. THE RESULT: SOME 15 MILLION DOLLARS A DAY SPENT OVER TEN YEARS, MUCH OF IT FOR NOTHING.
