WEB Notes: Does the media forget what they report? Why do they not call out the government for their support of terrorism? Three years ago we posted about the United States providing the Taliban with government contracts. Now you really know where that $17 billion dollars has gone. That is your tax money, to fund destabilization in other nations and create fear and terror in our own nation for a desired result. Common sense should tell us if $17 billion were really spent against the enemy, the enemy would not succeed. If the enemy is succeeding in light of this either their funding is far greater or we are being lied to about where the money is going.
The United States has spent more than $17 billion to provide weapons, ammunition, and other military equipment to Afghanistan’s struggling defense forces, even as the number of Afghans enlisted in these services dips amid a resurgence in Taliban-backed violence, according to new figures published by a government oversight body.
The United States has spent nearly $13 billion to arm the Afghan National Army as of May 31, 2016 and another $4.2 billion on weapons for the Afghan National Police, according to figures from the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction.
