That makes sense. Afghanistan has been a money pit for the USA for nearly two decades. Why stop now? It’s only the taxpayer’s money. Who cares?
For some reason our government is involved in social planning “gender equity” efforts on the other side of the globe. That’s totally cool and well within the roll of government. Again, it’s only YOUR money. It looks like it’s being well spent and not getting taken by cronies like other foreign aid often is.

A federal government program to promote gender equality in Afghanistan and help women find employment is costing taxpayers over $200 million but has only found jobs for 55 women.
The United States Agency for International Development program promised to “empower 75,000 women” but so far has shown little progress, according to a new report released by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR).
