Watchdog: Insurgency Supporters in Afghanistan Still Receiving U.S. Funds

Insurgency supporters in Afghanistan continue to receive American, taxpayer-funded contracts and the U.S. Army refuses to do anything about it, according to a government watchdog report sent to Congress.

“This quarter, I must once again reiterate my concerns about the policies of the U.S. Army’s suspension and debarment program,” said John Sopko, the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), in SIGAR’s October 2014 quarterly report to Congress.

SIGAR noted that the U.S. Army continues to refuse to prohibit backers of the Afghanistan insurgency, which is responsible for the death of over 2,200 American soldiers, from obtaining contracts funded by American taxpayers.  

The Suspension and Debarment Program is the American Army’s mechanism for prohibiting dishonest or poor-performing contractors from receiving new Army contracts.
