Shocking News — From Afghanistan

From today’s New York Times – shocking news:

A comprehensive review of American nation-building efforts in Afghanistan paints a dim picture of poor planning and inefficiency.

Really?

Much of the billions of dollars spent on aid projects has been ill thought out and has fueled corruption, the review says, while the efforts have drawn the best and the brightest Afghans away from government jobs where they are badly needed.

I’ll say.

But enough about that.  Let’s turn the page 😉  It’s only $$, right underwater homeowners and the unemployed?
