U.S. government waste in Afghanistan

How U.S. government employees blew $150 million renting little palaces for themselves in Afghanistan
The inspector general singled out three defense contractors as beneficiaries of the profligate spending. Triple Canopy provided "armed support" for the villas, earning $57 million over four years. Defense Group Incorporated received $51 million between 2009 and 2011 for services that included closed circuit television monitoring and a rapid reaction force in the event of a security breach. Muscogee Nation Business Enterprise ran villa entry control points for five years, in addition to providing armed transport for task force workers. These efforts netted the company $40 million.
