How's anything you write prove anything in the article wrong, let alone a "crock"? This article isnt about Western governments, it doesnt even mention
Instead, the chairwoman of Transparency International points out that the bribe money that is lavished on those corrupt officials in the poorest countries "often originates in multinational companies based in the world's richest countries"; and that those corrupt officials can easily "move, hide and invest their illicitly gained wealth" in the financial centres of the West due to insufficiently strict regulation.
How about addressing anything that's actually written in the article if you're going to declare it a crock?

of US money and US-administered money
that have gone missing
in Iraq over the years, in pay-outs to officials and companies that lacked any and all accountability, or any accounting at all.
