Faulted firm gets Afghan aid work

Last month, the U.S. Agency for International Development awarded a $150 million cooperative agreement to a partnership led by DAI, a Maryland company whose past Afghanistan contracts have been criticized by USAID's inspector general. The program is to promote alternatives to poppy crops

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Whatever governmental and lobbying influences colluded to make this contract happen, after these guys have already failed miserably in a previous contract in Afghanistan, one has to wonder if there is any real interest in stopping the farming of opium poppies in Afghanistan, because it is such a financially lucrative cash crop from which so many profit.

And "supervision" or "accountability" on this?!? Don't bet on it.
