Yes, the U.S. has built a $43 million gas station, but you won’t be able to avail yourselves of its services unless you live in Afghanistan.
The super-costly fueling facility is just the latest in a lengthy list of boondoggles exposed by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR).
“This is shocking in multiple ways,” Sen.Charles Grassley said in a statement Monday.
The cost of an unnecessary gas station in Afghanistan skyrocketed to a ridiculous height. Now, the Department of Defense is blocking access to documents and personnel that would shed light on how the money was spent.
