Defense Spending

DOD Asked for $60 Million More to Spend on Afghanistan Fund After Leaving $100+ Million Unspent

"Only" got $30 million


The Defense Department's special inspector general for Afghan reconstruction (SIGAR) released two more items today on wasteful spending in Afghanistan; a teaching facility USAID has awarded about $3 million in contracts to an Iraqi and multiple Afghan firms to build and repair that remains unusable according to a newreport (pdf), and a "Commander's Emergency Response Program" (CERP) for which Congress appropriated money that was left unspent.
