Shifty little buggers. Seems the Iraqi army is a tad corrupt…surprise, surprise. Over 50,000 false names have been found on their payrolls . The so called “ghost soldiers” have been paid a salary and the money syphoned off to corrupt officials, which might explain the rise of ISIS militants. The US must be rightly pissed as they have poured billions into building up the Iraqi army.

Holy criminal accusations Batman. The Vatican is all at Holy sea over a Vatileaks scandal that threatens to be a book. OK it’s already a book, and the Pope ain’t happy. Pope Benedict XVI has got his lawyers lined up, ready to sue as leaked documents about corruption and mismanagement within the Catholic church go public in the book His Holiness, by Italian journalist Gianluigi Nuzzi. Evidently someone on the inside has been providing private letters and memos between Pope Benedict and his personal secretary to the author (and it ain’t Murdoch). Um ah!!!
Things must be pretty corrupt at Nepal’s international airport because the anti corruption authorities are going to be issuing pocketless pants for staff. Try bribing tourists now suckers! Yes, after a humongous load of complaints by tourists about the behavior of some individuals working at the airport all officials will be given bribe-proof trousers. Hmm, they should be nice and unflattering!
