American Taxpayers Just Footed The Bill For This $43 MILLION GAS STATION IN AFGHANISTAN
American taxpayers always get screwed when progressives are in charge. While conservatives are being audited by the IRS, the government is out wasting their money in countries that harbor Islamic terrorists.
It might be the world’s most expensive gas station — not to mention a gross misuse of taxpayer money, according to a top government watchdog.
The Department of Defense spent $43 million to build a gas station in Afghanistan that should have cost roughly $500,000, the lead oversight team monitoring U.S. spending in Afghanistan has found. The discovery came as part of a broader investigation into allegations of criminal activity within the DOD’s premiere program to kick-start the Afghan economy.
“It’s fright-night at the Pentagon,” John Sopko, special inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction (SIGAR), told FoxNews.com, calling the spending “outrageous to the taxpayer.”
At issue is spending by the Task Force for Stability and Business Operations, known as TFBSO or the Task Force, which ended in March 2015. But most alarming, according to Sopko, is the DOD’s failure to answer questions about the $800 million program and its claim the Task Force’s employees no longer work for the DOD.
Can we get our money back, please?
