Pentagon Spent Almost $150 Million on Luxury Villas in Afghanistan

 

A report by an Inspector General says that the Pentagon spent nearly $150 million on villas, meals, and security guards for a “handful” of employees and visitors in Afghanistan.

Only a month earlier, it was revealed that they had spent $43 million on a gas station that should have cost only $500,000.

"If employees had instead lived at facilities in Afghanistan, where housing, security, and food service are routinely provided at little or no extra charge to DoD organizations, it appears the taxpayers would have saved tens of millions of dollars," Inspector General John Sopko explained.

I remember that they gave out bundles of cash to thousands of people with no oversight.

Obama is one of the best Presidents we have ever had. But, we also have the worst collection of Republican congressmen ever assembled! George Bush and Dick Cheney created ISIS by invading the WRONG DAMN COUNTRY!!!! We are suffering for that big time. The cash was handed out by the Bush Administration mostly to Halliburton. Republicans are incompetent idiots. They are destroying this country.

The country has been utterly destroyed by Liberals. The housing bubble that liberals like to blame Bush for is their own creation by forcing banks to make loans to people that couldn´t pay it back. Fast forward to ophuckup; Record numbers on welfare, record numbers of jobs exported over seas, first president to require people buy something from a third party (read ophuckup care) going after political enemies using the IRS, stagnant wages, lowest labour participation rate in US history, sympathizing with ISIS which was created by Ophuckups exit strategy. The list goes on and on and on. Liberalism is a mental illness.
