Iraq's military marred by corruption

Corruption and nepotism leave Iraq's military struggling against rebels despite billions of dollars spent.

    Bribery, corruption, and nepotism have led some analysts to say Iraq's military has been "built to fail". 

    Billions of dollars have been spent rebuilding the military since the fall of Sadaam Hussein, but it's clearly struggling to fend off the Sunni rebellion.
