The United States has wasted $15.5 billion in Afghanistan since 2008, according to the Special Inspector General for Afghan Reconstruction, which they estimate is probably only a portion of the waste, fraud, abuse and failed efforts of the U.S. in Afghanistan. How sad that this money wasn’t used for urban renewal projects in the U.S. Imagine what $15.5 billion could do for a city like Philadelphia, Chicago or Los Angeles if spent wisely.
