More outstanding stewardship of U.S. taxpayer dollars...

$85 MILLION GOES POOF IN THE NIGHT

The Marriott Hotel in Afghanistan was supposed to be a 209-room, five-star hotel next to a 150-unit luxury apartment complex. But the two buildings, adjacent to the U.S. embassy in Kabul, were never completed, according to the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR).

No one won the war in Afghanistan. Why would US?
Not only winning war is impossible in Afghanistan but also military industrial complex would not allow this war to be won.
