Billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars are being wasted in Afghanistan on fruitless reconstruction projects that are awash in corruption and have little government oversight, according to the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR).
Additionally, lack of oversight may have led to the United States funding the purchase of Iranian oil in direct violation of sanctions against Iran.
My, what a surprise! Aren’t you surprised? I’m sure surprised.
