Karzai Cabinet

leave a comment »

The AP has the scoop on Afghan president Hamid Karzai’s new cabinet, and – surprise! – it’s packed with US favorites in departments relating to War and Reconstruction.

This whole Afghan adventure is a massive money laundering scheme. Capital goes from the taxpayer to Afghanistan in the form of “aid”. Then Afghanistan spends that money on US contractors. So it’s a direct loop through Afghanistan, from public coffers to private. And there’s nothing we can do about it.
