$45 Billion In Tax Dollars Goes Missing In Afghanistan - Afghans Buy Luxury Villas In Dubai With US Tax Payer's Dollars.
[link to www.examiner.com]

$45 billion in tax dollars goes missing in Afghanistan. Special Inspector General for Afghan Reconstruction is placing the blame on the Pentagon's accounting mismanagement practices.

Only 57% of the $195 million appropriated to CERP from 2002-2013 could be accounted for.

While Afghans buy luxury villas in Dubai with US tax payer's dollars.

Could the two be related?

FROM LINK:
The CERP initiative “enables U.S. commanders in Afghanistan to respond to urgent humanitarian relief and reconstruction requirements in their areas of responsibility by supporting programs that will immediately assist the local population” according to the report. CERP contracts are restricted in terms of spending on individual contracts; those that cost more than $1 million or $5 million have to be approved by oversight bodies, and no individual contract can exceed $20 million.

FROM LINK:
Are billions of American taxpayers dollars being taken out of Afghanistan and buying expensive villas in Dubai?

According to SPIEGELONLINE on July 5, 2010, since invading Afghanistan in 2001, the United States has put almost $300 billion into military and reconstruction efforts.A lot of this money has been siphoned off and no one seems to know where it has gone. Now the answer seems to be that the money is being used to buy luxury villas in Dubai.

SpiegelOnline also reports that it leaves the country when politicians and businesspeople board planes from the VIP sections of the airport without being searched. Even if custom officials do find suitcases stuffed with millions of dollars, Afghans with the right connect know how to get it out of the country. It is just another part of the corruption that is part of the way things are done in Afghanistan: a few phone calls and the luggage is loaded onto the airplane. According to some estimates, since 2007, some $3 billion of American has disappeared

Technically it isn't really "missing". It was just redistributed off the books to our enemies in a time of war. If it could be properly accounted for, that would be treason and we all know the people who control the flow of money would never do that or play both sides of a conflict right? So as it is just "missing", it's a clerical oversight involving our "allies".

They don't even spend that much to fix broken infrastructure here at home. Things have gone beyond insane, we're in a surreal landscape of military actions sanctioned by elite banksters.

If we the taxpayer fail to account for few hundred dollars the IRS comes down on us like Hell's own fury. Yet they can throw billions around with zero accountability. What planet did I wake up on?
