US Funding for Afghan Spies Subsidize Abusive Militia Factions

Corrupt politicians and a bribery-centric economy has been the order of the day in US-occupied Afghanistan for many years. But that’s just the big cities, where the corruption is built into the political system. In more rural areas, things are even worse, though no less a function of US subsidies.

Among the many recipients of US billions, Afghanistan’s spy agency, the National Directorate of Security (NDS) is awash in money from both the Pentagon and the CIA, with the usual lack of oversight that US aid seems to imply in this part of the world.

The NDS has plenty of problems of their own, but the real danger is that the NDS, in trying to “fight the Taliban” in areas less controlled by the government, bankrolls militias and warlords with US-provided funds. Indications are that the NDS doesn’t care how the job gets done, or realistically if it gets done.

Rather, the militia leaders seem free to run roughshod over the locals in this areas, using the NDS funding to gear up and extort even more from the local population, torturing anyone that resists, and killing any political rivals that get in the way.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why is the US government, through their lack of oversight here, making the Taliban look good to the Afghani people?!?

The words "Counterproductive in the extreme" keep racing through my head hear,and at warp speed!!
