Your taxpayer dollars at work

From today’s Times of London:

The West is indirectly funding the insurgency in Afghanistan thanks to a system of payoffs to Taleban commanders who charge protection money to allow convoys of military supplies to reach NATO bases in the south of the country.

In case it’s slipped your memory, the strategy of the current Administration, and the next, is to add more combat troops.
