Report: US should hit the 'pause' button on Afghan aid

Published: 02.14.13, 00:22 / Israel News

The US government should reconsider whether to spend more on reconstruction aid in Afghanistan, the US watchdog who monitors the funds said on Wednesday, citing Afghanistan's persistent corruption and inability to manage projects as US troops withdraw.


John Sopko, the special inspector general for Afghan reconstruction, said $20 billion in US assistance for Afghanistan had been appropriated but not yet spent. Nearly $10 billion more in aid may soon be approved by Congress. (Reuters)
