Look, I don’t mean to sound prejudiced or discriminatory, but WHAT DID THEY REALLY EXPECT?!?!? We have our SUPPOSED allies, Afghan soldiers and police, randomly turning against us AND KILLING OUR TROOPS AS WE SIT IDLY BY AND WATCH….. AND THEN THEY USED AFGHAN CONTRACTORS TO INSTALL THESE “CULVERT DENIAL SYSTEMS” TO PROTECT OUR TROOPS?!?!?! And then we are SURPRISED to learn that they weren’t installed correctly, and actually CONTRIBUTED to the deaths of our HEROES?!?!?!?

“Botched anti-IED system may be linked to US soldier deaths in Afghanistan, report finds

“Millions of…dollars have been spent … of so-called “culvert denial systems… but a… report released… by the Special Inspector General for Afghan Reconstruction says hundreds of the devices were never installed or installed improperly. … an investigation has been launched “into whether this… failure…may have been a factor in the death or injury of… U.S. soldiers.”

… two arrests so far…an Afghan contractor and a sub-contractor…who were paid $1 …to install 250 culvert denial systems, didn’t install the devices as promised. The ones they did install were installed incorrectly…

“The loss of life because individuals were not doing their job is horrific and unacceptable,” Special Inspector General John Sopko told FoxNews… “This case shows so clearly that fraud can kill in Afghanistan. We will find out if contracting officers did not do their job and if that proves to be true and Americans have died, we will hold those individuals accountable.”

Both men have been charged with fraud and negligent homicide.”
