43 Million Gas Station

AfghanistanGasStation

USA Today reports:

U.S. taxpayers footed the bill for a $43 million natural-gas filling station in Afghanistan, a boondoggle that should have cost $500,000 and has virtually no value to average Afghans, the government watchdog for reconstruction in Afghanistan announced Monday.

Will anyone be held accountable? Probably not. The least, the very least, that we as American taxpayers should expect is that our tax money be spent for useful things. We don’t, and so it will continue.
