Iraq Costs: Hypothetical or inconsequential

The Congressional Budget Office has estimated the cost of the Iraq and Afghanistan occupations at $2.4 trillion over the next decade. For you kids keeping score at home, that’s $8,000 per U.S. citizen. The White House dismissed the estimate as hypothetical. I take “hypothetical” as a code word for inconsequential.

Watch you wallet.

  1. That is 48x Bush’s initial estimate cost.

  2. Renegade Eye,

    As I recall, he fired his Chairman of Economic Advisers for saying it would be $200 billion.

    You could solve a lot of the world’s problems with $2.4 trillion.
