Report finds U.S. tax money may be funding Afghan insurgents

Private security contractors protecting the convoys that supply U.S. military bases in Afghanistan are paying millions of dollars a week in "passage bribes" to the Taliban and other insurgent groups to travel along Afghan roads, a congressional investigation released Monday has found.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

US Army hires contractor to transport the supplies soldiers need to fight the Taliban. Contractor hires locals to do the job. Locals bribe Taliban not to attack their convoys. Taliban gets money they need to resist US forces.

This is the same government that insists it can manage your health care and save the world from carbon dioxide.
