Japan leads the international community as the nation--other than the US--that has pledged the most money for the reconstruction of Iraq, according to a new report released Tuesday by the GAO.

The IMF and the World Bank outdid the Islamic Republic, with $3 million and $2.5 million respectively, but the multinational conglomerations still did not come close to matching Japan.
