How many scandals are required before Liberals will sit up and take notice of just how corrupt their self-aggrandizing, false messiah, Barack Obama really was?
President Obama loved to throw around taxpayer dollars like they were his own little slush fund, especially when it involved Middle Eastern, Islamic dictatorships!
Well, guess what? Under the watchful eye of Donald Trump, another of Obama’s wasteful scandals has surfaced and you’re not going to guess how he managed to waste another $300 million of our hard-earned tax dollars! By paying for the salaries of non-existent “ghost” soldiers and policemen who the Obama administration assumed were in Afghanistan.
From Right Wing News:
John Sopko is a special inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction who explained what had been going on in an interview with Sharyl Attkinson. What was raised as the ongoing difficulty may have been even worse than anyone anticipated.
“We’ve been raising this concern about ghosts going back a number of years. Actually I want to say we heard about it from (Afghan President) Ashraf Ghani years ago, before he became president, he warned me about ‘ghosts,’ so we started looking three years ago.”
“What we’re talking about are policemen, Afghan policemen, Afghan military, Afghan civil servants who don’t exist or they have multiple identity cards and we’re paying their salaries. By ‘we’ I mean the United States and the international community. And we started finding out that we had no capacity to measure the number of soldiers, teachers, doctors, military people who we are paying their salaries.”
The figures were ran and the amount of money that was funneled into a non-existent program was around $300 million.
Then the question became whether or not this was a serious sign of fraud, Sopko gave this:
“Major fraud. And what’s happening is the commanders or generals or other higher officials are actually pocketing the salaries of the ghosts.”
Sopko went ahead and warned the Pentagon on many occasions as to what he had found back in 2016, but no one actually cared and no one addressed the issue by the administration of President Barack Obama.
Well, of course no one cared! When the money isn’t coming directly out of the pockets of politicians, they don’t have the least bit of concern until the public finds out. Then they all scramble to get out in front of the crowd and claim they were working on it the whole time!
I hope that someday this all adds up to a big fat prison sentence for Barack Obama! Lord knows he deserves it!
