State Dept. Eyes Realignment of Iraq Reconstruction Funds

Henri Barkey, chair of the international relations department at Lehigh, was quoted in an article about the realignment of Iraq reconstruction funds.

"But spending money where you didn't think you'd have to also means you won't be providing what you led people to believe would be coming."
