Afghanistan Today, your portal to the United States’ growing nightmare abroad.

Afghanistan Today, the GWOT Hotspot (the Afghanistan Scandal?) 7/29/14 Tue. (155 days to go)

leave a comment »

155 long days to go for US troops still there. Retrograde operations continue as all US troops leave by 31 December 2014, from a still dangerous Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, money that should go for US troops, US veterans, and protection of our borders is wasted in Afghanistan.

Those officers responsible should be held accountable from the top down.

Did top officers speak up on the abuse and waste of US tax dollars they were entrusted with? Gen. McKiernan, Gen. McChrystal, Gen. Petraeus, Gen. Allen, Gen. Dunsford, Adm. Mullen, and on and on and on the list goes…oh, not to leave out Gen. Dempsey among others: Did they speak up about the waste and failed COIN nation building costing the US taxpayers dearly when their own troops, and certainly veterans could have used this money? There should be public investigations and they can clarify their record if indeed they did warn of the abuse of US tax dollars and call for stopping the COIN theory of nation building.
