Maybe I just don't know who handles it, but it shouldn't be this difficult to find reporting on Greek finances.

Do the EU and/or national laws not require governments to produce CAFRs or other audited financial statements for the public?

You shouldn't need to go digging through Eurostat or the OECD to find out how much they're spending on this or that.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.

Well, Talos provided the Greek figures.

The problem isn't that the figures aren't readily available, it's that they differ.

Right on the page for Eurostat statistics you'll find a Eurostat report dated January 10, 2010 that explains the Greek statistic situation. The short of it: Greece gave bad predictive statistics each year, and then Eurostat conducted a methodological review (each year) that gave the actual statistics.
