Stunning, Shocking, Unbelievable Grifters of the Afghan War – why we stayed

The grifters of the Afghan War are described in stunning fashion on Breaking Points. They explain with evidence why we stayed in Afghanistan for twenty years — follow the money. It’s unbelievable and it’s a must-watch.

Although the former Afghan President Ghani denies it, it is believed that he escaped with $169 million in cash. The defense contractors allegedly took advantage. About 80 to 90% of the trillions spent in Afghanistan went to contractors and back to the US — Beltway grift.

They believe this is why there was so much anger when the US tried to pull out of the country.

About 300 million dollars went to ‘ghost’ soldiers while real soldiers went without pay for months. The money for the ghost soldiers went to commanders and their personal luxuries.

The US spent $43 million on an Afghanistan gas station, about 40 times what it normally costs.

The Taliban moved quickly because they used the roads we built, but at least that money went to something.

We only trained about one-sixth of the alleged 300,000 soldiers.

While we built some schools, we built few, and not that many girls were enrolled.

One of the wealthiest people in Afghanistan was an interpreter overcharging the US.

A US colonel told the host the Afghans kept running out of gas. The fact is they never used it. They were requisitioning it to sell it on the black market. The Afghan government was very corrupt.

There’s more — watch:

I was at a camp in the Helmand Providence and remember a forklift among other junk motorized equipment leased from Karzi’s brother for 10,000/month. It was broken down the entire 14 months I was there. The Navy Seabees were also there with all their construction equipment. Except for once when a part of the outer perimeter was moved I never saw any of that equipment move. Contractors using labor from India did all construction including dirt work. I remember nice permanent structures being built on Bagram Air Base as late as 2012 and beyond as we were winding down operations preparing to pull out. I also saw construction along Disney Drive for an expensive first class sewer system at this time. I know B-Huts and other structures made of plywood were torn down but I’ll bet those weren’t so I’m sure the Taliban is enjoying them.
I don’t mind spending to make our military members comfortable but why build permanent structures when we know we’re leaving soon? Maybe too much money in the budget that has to be spent because of zero balance budging? Let’s support our military to the fullest but end the waste.

This is how corrupt America is. Twenty years of congressional oversight did nothing. Hearings covered generalities, were held as formalities for more funding. Wait for the circus hearings which will gloss over the entire disaster.

In their entire existence the Afghani people have never had so much as one iota of honesty and it only got worse after they converted.

Afghanistan has become the Central Station for all of the terrorists in the world who will set up shop and have unlimited supplies of the best US technology to conduct their operations. The war on terror has been dealt a setback from which it will be impossible to recover unless we completely and totally change our strategy and simply annihilate them once and for all no matter how many need to be liquidated. The first step is to wipe our homegrown traitors off the face of the earth and then and only then can we set about to save our civilization.
