OK, this is one of the great Insane Minds of all time. Per Fox news up to $1 billion of our dollars going to Afghanistan end up not, helping anyone or building anything, they end up with the Taliban, who no doubt use this money to fund their jihad against the US and use that money to buy guns, ammo and bombs to kill US troops!
Obviously, we have massive stupidity running rampant in Washington, DC as evidenced by the fact that this continues and that we still have troops in Afghanistan, fighting an un-winnable war, not to mention all the money that’s going to the Taliban to kill our troops. Does this meet the definition of insanity? Oh, before you judge it, it gets even better. Per Fox our illustrious Commander-in-Chief has known about this for quite awhile, and evidently prefers sitting on his hands, which makes me wonder if he likes giving billiions to his Taliban buddies……
That is the same assessment that Richard Holbrooke, the special envoy for Afghanistan and Pakistan, gave to President Obama more than a year ago, according to Bob Woodward’s book, Obama’s Wars. “All the contractors for development projects pay the Taliban for protection and use of the roads, so American and coalition dollars help finance the Taliban,” Woodward wrote.
It gets better. It seems the government is allowed to hide all this so the public doesn’t hear about it.
But there really is no way to know exactly how much money has been diverted, experts say, because the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) makes sure accounting practices do not pick it up and because of the structure of the subcontracting system.
As Thibauld has noted, subcontractors usually build in somewhere between 20 and 40 percent markup for payoffs. And that money never shows up on the books of the major contractors. But with more than $50 billion in U.S. aid money already spent, the diverted corruption costs would likely equal the amount of estimated graft generated by the country’s $4-billion-a-year poppy crop.
“It is amazing,” Fair said. “Every agency in Afghanistan has to file detailed reports except USAID, which does not report ‘overhead’ on its books. It is deliberate obfuscation.”
So, we have Obama who’s supposedly the person who should have the buck stops here sign on his desk and we have the Department of State in collusion with him and his cronies to hide all of this from the public and probably Congress, too.
Is anyone awake in Washington, DC? Will we get a Congressional investigation of this after November 2, when we hopefully will have Republican control of the House and possibly the Senate? Or, will there be more hand-sitting in Washington, DC?
You tell me, Insane Minds are obviously in control.
