I saw a news story about this and it made me so frustrated. With all of the needy people in our country and abroad, this huge building built at taxpayer expense will likely be destroyed without having ever been used. The United States military spent millions of dollars on a shining new command center in the Helmand province of Afghanistan — a center that will never be used and is now likely to be completely demolished. The building was built for the American military, and is physically incompatible with the Afghan power grid without a costly overhaul. In addition, the cost of maintaining such a facility would also likely be far more than the Afghan government would be willing to commit. The result: the building in all its shining grandeur will likely be demolished having never been put to its intended use.
I feel like the layers of bureaucracy in our government make this possible. There is no accountability. Our tax dollars are just funny money to people in congress and their minions.
