welfare for Iraqi mercenaries and American farmers

This month's Harpers reports that 91,600 Iraqis were paid NOT to fight by the American government. (They cite Multi-National Force-- the official website of Operation Iraqi Freedom-- although I cannot find it there.)

Is that better or worse or just different than the EWG data which tells us that the American government paid 517K farmers NOT to farm in 2005 (a total of $1.8 billion).

Your taxpayer dollars at work......uhhh, or not at work.
