MIC at work against the American taxpayer

The Pentagon wasted millions of taxpayer dollars buying the Afghan army a woodland camouflage uniform that was apparently chosen on a whim and may have made soldiers easier to spot, a U.S. government watchdog said Wednesday. The office of the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) said the Pentagon may have spent as much as $28 million more than necessary when it decided in 2007 to purchase the dark-green "forest" camouflage uniforms, even though forests cover only about 2 percent of the country, SIGAR noted. Still, Afghanistan's then defense minister liked the pattern. And although the proprietary design came at a premium price, the report says officials paid without conducting any formal testing or evaluation.
