This corruption is why the afghan national army failed. All their pay and supplies were being funneled into the pockets of the high up military brass.

One of the many reasons why the Ghani regime and military collapsed so quickly. How can you motivate soldiers to fight to the end when their leaders were robbing them and sending them off to die for them to keep their luxuries then abandoning them without any support?

Reminds me of what the NVA and Viet Cong saw when they took over Saigon.

Americans like to talk about how much they spent in Afghanistan but if you look a little closer at the money trail. 70-80 % of that money moved back to America via the contractors US government hired, that money never entered the Local Afghan economy. And the little that did entered Afghan economy was siphoned off by corrupt politicians

This is where our taxpayer money went, to the corrupt leaders of the previous Afghan Gov who spent it on themselves and not the people.

This is the mansion of a mere minion of Hamid Karzai and Ashraf Ghani, imagine the booty they themselves collected from the United States, India and the other coalition countries.

"Corruption." It corrodes everything. Look at where Americans tax dollars went in Afghanistan. And the bridges over the Missispi are collapsing, and there is no money to fix them.

Actually I liked the video. Why can't we have daily Vlogs like that? It is more interesting than Kardashians.

Seems like the taliban actually has more of a heart than the u.s politicians..
