The Price of War in Afghanistan

The Price of War in Afghanistan | New Eastern Outlook: As noted in a recent study published by the Pentagon, since the invasion of Afghanistan the US government allocated the whooping 700 billion dollars to achieve the “liberation” of this state, not counting the paychecks CIA agents spent on bribes to Afghan officials. Jeanne Shaheen, a US Senator, stated that “It’s like the United States government subsidizing the Taliban, al Qaeda, the Haqqani network, those groups that are trying to shoot and kill our soldiers.” Moreover, according to the Special Inspector General for Afghan Reconstruction, billions of dollars have been wasted on nothing while the Pentagon was hiring companies, which it suspected were having contacts with terrorists.
