GOUSA spent billions on buildings, infrastructure in Afghanistan…now it’s called “ZOMBIELAND”


Stars and Stripes

The United States spent more than $2 billion since 2008 on buildings and vehicles in Afghanistan that are now either in disrepair, not being used as intended or completely unusable, according to a recent review by a government oversight group

“Of the nearly $7.8 billion in capital assets reviewed in its prior reports, Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction…SIGAR identified about $2.4 billion in assets that were unused or abandoned, had not been used for their intended purposes, had deteriorated, or were destroyed,” the report said…

I doubt there is any branch of the United States government that can waste more money than our military. There probably is a secret department in the Pentagon set aside just for the creation of excuses for mismanagement and cost overruns.

    All in the service of the GOUSA’s corporate sponsors. I’m sure they see it as an important investment. I’d have though the sums involved to be a lot more.
