Afghan ministries incapable of managing US aid

Washington (AFP) - Millions of dollars in US aid is flowing into Afghanistan even though the ministries receiving the funds are incapable of managing such large sums of money, a US official report said Thursday.

The US has committed some $1.6 billion in direct aid to the Afghan government this year to fund some 18 programs across 10 ministries.

But according to the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction, "USAID contractors assessed 16 Afghan ministries and found they are unable to manage and account for funds."
This is a continuation of the Bush Administration's policy of putting incompetent boobs in charge of our overseas misadventures.

You kind of asume there might exist competent non-boobs in the American political class which could run them effectively.
I assume the opposite which is more reason to support anti-imperial coalitions of both right and left-the chance that the much needed money could be effectively spent at home at least would be improved.
