Half US military aid to Afghanistan stolen, expert says

Half US military aid to Afghanistan stolen, expert says: 

Since the U.S. began training and supplying the police and military in 2002, more than $76 billion has been spent on Afghan security, according to a recent report by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO).

However, Kabul Khan Tadbeer, a former Afghan intelligence official and a security analyst, said “brazen corruption” had seen a large proportion of the money and weapons siphoned off.

“Those internal forces who grabbed power after the fall of the Taliban regime notoriously armed private militias and even embezzled numerous small arms and ammunition that are not accounted for yet,” he said.
