Not only is the US Government buying up loads of ammo for themselves for God knows what reason, they are also stocking up to help the corrupt Afghanistan National Police (ANP). Yes, $288 million of your tax dollars was pissed away on ammo for these corrupt cops. Yet, we still can’t open the White House for kids who want to see it. I’m sick of this nation building crap, and especially paying for ammo for a corrupt country’s police. You think that’s bad? It doesn’t end at just ammo.
The U.S. government has spent $288 million on ammunition for the troubled Afghan National Police (ANP), according to a detailed quarterly report issued by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR).
The United States also has spent more than $366 million on weapons for the ANP and intends to spend another $14.2 million arming the force, according to SIGAR’s report, which highlights a massive amount of waste and abuse in Afghanistan.
A total of $3.4 billion has been spent on equipment and transportation, including weapons, for the ANP, according to the report, which found that “most of these funds were used to purchase weapons and related equipment, vehicles, and communications equipment.”
Taxpayer dollars continue to be wasted on the ANP, SIGAR found.
