Afghanistan in numbers, 15 years after US invasion

Afghanistan in numbers, 15 years after US invasion: 
The United States has spent around $110 billion on Afghanistan's reconstruction since 2001, more than the cost of the Marshall Plan that rebuilt a devastated Europe after World War II, but with limited results.
Some 80 percent of that sum has landed in "American pockets" according to European observers in the form of military contracts, maintenance tasks and various consultants.
