Waste, Fraud and Abuse in Afghanistan Reconstruction
We identified up to $15.5 billion in waste, fraud, and abuse, and failed whole-of-government reconstruction efforts (or 29 percent of the $52.7 billion we examined). Our review identified 643 instances of waste, fraud, and abuse valued between $2.2 billion and $3.5 billion of the reconstruction dollars we examined. In addition, $12 billion spent on two whole-of government reconstruction efforts appear to have failed and resulted in wasted U.S. taxpayer dollars.
