RANT:

This morning even NPR was highlighting all the corruption, payoffs, profiteering by Afghanis up and down the country. From war lords to security contractors "so many were on the take". CNN: "It's been widely known", this corruption".

Just asking the DU'ers...."How many of you learned the extent of this corruption from even our liberal media? Where was the reporting, the investigations, the outrage by the Times, the Post, the networks?

I'm sure I could have missed a story or so but if it was such a blatant, widely corrupt practice it surely would have been a top story by even the GQPers.

Rant over.

2. The corruption has been reported

For those of us who served in Afghanistan, the poppy palaces, the crates of US made M16s and green tipped 556 ammo being passed around to anyone who wants a rifle and ammo, corruption was thick. If you havenít heard or read about the corruption you havenít paid attention. Washington Post has been writing on the corruption for years.
