American taxpayers foot the bill for continued fraud, misspending and flagrant waste in Afghanistan
To start with; I don’t think that 50 – 70 % of the people in the country knows what is going on politically. Maybe they are smarter than I am.
If they do and approve; there are pathologically imbeciles.
Watchdog reports show more than $19 billion in squandered projects
If this is not a good example of why the USA should close the bank book to the rest of the world, I don’t know what is. It is not bad enough we are voluntarily getting fleeced, much of what we send is misappropriated.
As I have pointed this out so many times before; a good majority of the $oldi we send to foreign countries in the way of aid is squandered/stolen/misappropriated and never reaches it intended destination.
A staggering $19 billion between 2009 and 2019 has been written off as waste, according to the Office of the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR). 19,000,000,000.00$ being wasted. Who the hell is minding the store; Bernie Made-off-with-it??
Folks; that is a 19 and 9 zeros. I keep asking myself; what could this country do with 19 billion if spent wisely??
“SIGAR has identified nearly $20 billion in waste. I suspect that number is much higher, SIGAR has only audited about one half of the $134 billion in aid provided since 2002,” Bill Roggio, senior fellow, Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD) and editor of the Long War Journal, told Fox News. “Money (was thrown) at the problem in the hope (to) fix it. This merely fed the corrupt politicians, bureaucrats, military and police officials, and others who are in no short demand.”
Based on facts, figures and cold hard evidence; even a semi-intelligent person has to AXE themselves, WTFAWSDI??? Our kids are drowning while we are trying to save the others.
I have to wonder if THE DECISION MAKERS ever heard of the expression; when a person is too good, their kindness is mistaken for stupidity.
I believe; if the money was a followed, I bet there are 1,000’s of envelopes that find their way back to the politicians here in the USA or hidden is Swiss bank accounts.
There can be no other logical explanation; knowing how the money is dispersed, why anyone would be so insistent on continually getting robbed unless they were part of the heist.
Folks; if you have not figured it out by now, 99.9% of the politicians are crooks. That percentage is being kind.
CURRENT STIMULAS PACKAGE.
