BBC News - Investigators claim US money is funding Afghan Taliban

Quote(Investigators say the US military has been giving tens of millions of dollars to Afghan security firms who are channelling the money to warlords.

Trucks carrying supplies to US troops allegedly pay the firms to ensure their safe passage in dangerous areas of Afghanistan.

The convoys are attacked if payments are not made, according to allegations on a US military document.

The congressional report follows a six-month investigation.

The document states that trucks carrying food, water, fuel, and ammunition may be supplying up to $4 million (£2.7m) per week to the firms.)

So the US is in effect funding the very people who are killing US and NATO troops.
Brilliant, could not make this story up if one tried.
This really boils my blood!

You think we would have the COMMON SENSE to check who we are giving money too! This is unacceptable. Someone should be held accountable. Or maybe we as tax payers should be able to be better informed. This is infuriating. So basically our tax dollars are going to the enemy... it started with oil which already makes me mad, and now this. Sigh.
