I only have three words to say about this development.......A House committee has launched an investigation into claims that US military contractors in Afghanistan are paying the Taliban to guarantee the safety of their transportation convoys, an allegation that could mean American taxpayers are indirectly funding the insurgency that has killed more than 900 American soldiers so far.
“Serious allegations have been [made] that private security providers for US transportation contractors in Afghanistan are regularly paying local warlords and the Taliban for security," said Rep. John Tierney (D-MA), chairman of the Subcommittee on National Security and Foreign Affairs. "After a preliminary inquiry, it has been determined these reports warrant a full-scale subcommittee investigation."
The Taliban are the guys who supported bin Laden's attack on 911. They continue to kill American soldiers on a daily basis. They have attacked US interests in other parts of the world. They are still planning even more attacks. And these contractors are giving them money to protect their convoys, money which will be used for more attacks on US interests around the world, and the killings of more US soldiers?
Now, I only have one word to say.......
