Thanks for your take on the article.
I remain in Kabul (just starting the second year), but to see first hand "waste, fraud, and abuse" one only needs to visit Bagram, (too many folks with nothing to do.)
I was there in 08 and they still have troops living in BHuts (Plywood huts) to this day, sub-standard by any measure, ten years into this war, and that (to me) smacks of gross incompetence from the leaders.
Don't get me started on the exchange system their motto "We go where you go" and charge you like you were in Washington DC +20%, and you never get the correct change if paying with cash.
AAFES just another criminal organization, brought to you by idiots with no morals

Some BHuts are being torn down in Bagram. I am not sure what type of structure will replace them though. I guess it will be barracks living again for a lot of the troops. Many preferred BHut living because their was a little more privacy but who knows what the powers that be plan in safe confines are going to come up with.
