Who's up for rort reform?

PRIME Minister John Howard believed as early as 2002 that Saddam Hussein was rorting the UN oil-for-food program, but never suspected the Australian Wheat Board had any part in the corruption.
Testifying to the Cole inquiry, Mr Howard said he "did not receive or read" any of a batch of diplomatic cables documents that could have alerted him to suspicious deals between AWB and Iraq.

Oil for food scandals sound so much more interesting when you discuss rorting.
