Al-Qaeda Backers Found With U.S. Contracts in Afghanistan.Submitted by go213mph on Thu, 08/01/2013 - 19:05
A few months ago this would be shocking...but since we are funding Al-Qaeda in Syria...this doesn't surprise me. I just shake my head and think WTF???
Supporters of the Taliban and al-Qaeda in Afghanistan have been getting U.S. military contracts, and American officials are citing “due process rights” as a reason not to cancel the agreements, according to an independent agency monitoring spending.
The U.S. Army Suspension and Debarment Office has declined to act in 43 such cases, John Sopko, the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction, said today in a letter accompanying a quarterly report to Congress.
“I am deeply troubled that the U.S. military can pursue, attack, and even kill terrorists and their supporters, but that some in the U.S. government believe we cannot prevent these same people from receiving a government contract,” Sopko said.
