$360 Million U.S. Tax Dollars Lost to Insurgents, Criminals in Afghanistan

Wednesday, August 17, 2011

At a time when President Obama tours the Midwest in a bus, extolling the virtues of “shared sacrifice”, the U.S military estimates $360 million in U.S. tax dollars has ended up in the hands of insurgents and criminals in Afghanistan.

Instead of ending the decade-long war in Afghanistan — the longest in U.S. history, the Obama administration’s inexplicable strategy has been to tripled the number of troops in the conflict and award U.S.-financed contracts to Afghan businesses to help improve quality of life and stoke the country’s economy.

I find it disturbing that at a time when unemployment in the U.S. is 9.1% and Americans overwhelmingly say the country is headed in the wrong direction, President Obama is concerned with the quality of life of the Afghan people.

Perhaps, Barack Obama should run for president of Afghanistan in 2012?

    $360 million is chump change. A few months back there was a report of billion going missing in Afghanistan. I don’t buy it though. If the U.S. were really interested in finding this missing loot they should check Karzai’s bank account. I will bet my life the money is there. The American people are fools for tolerating this sort of thing from out elected leadership in Washington. As for Obama, he should be impeached. He started a war in Libya — the forgotten war, without congressional approval which is an impeachable offense.

    Am I just getting old and forgetful but didn’t Barack Obama campaign in 2008 promising to end the Afghanistan war? How do you triple troop levels and claim you’re ending American involvement in a conflict? Talk about double-speak. As for the missing millions, no wonder we’re flat broke.

  3. Marcus Ybanez says:

    Mark my words, we’re going to learn millions, possibly billions, of U.S. tax dollars have gone missing in Pakistan too.

    Obama is obsessed with Pakistan. Pakistan represents the next steeping stone in the eastward expansion of the American Empire in the region. Our behavior mirrors every other dying superpower throughout history. Trust me, it won’t be much longer until the whole thing collapses.

  4. The insurgents in Afghanistan are the very folks who just recently, shot down a U.S. military Chinook helicopter killing 31 American soldiers.

    So, the question I have is, why is President Obama giving $360 million dollars to America’s enemies?

    Isn’t this an act of treason?

    Barry is an organ grinder’s monkey for the neocons in the Pentagon.

    They tug on his leash and he dances. Triple troop levels? Done! He’s a tool. And to think, we thought things would be different? How wrong we were.

  6. DMason says:

    It makes you question just how broke we are when the USA can drop $360 million on a bunch of militant, Islamic, American-hating murders, and look the other way, doesn’t it? If the USA is as skint as the president, Geithner and all the others say, how can we afford to do this?
