America Is In the Very Best of Hands Under Obama and Kerry: Buzkashi Edition

So, while American taxpayers have forked over hundreds of millions of dollars to keep a corrupt, sharia, thug regime in power in Afghanistan, the story just gets even better...


Hi, how you?

Here's what your government has been up to lately...IT IS UP TO THE WAZOO IN GOAT CARCASSES AT YOUR EXPENSE.

"Buzkashi, the national sport of Afghanistan, is a fascinating game that's sort of like a cross between polo and rugby, except that instead of a ball you play with a headless goat carcass. I recommend you watch it sometime, and apparently, the State Department does, too."

"The Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) John Sopko suspects something is "seriously wrong" and wants to know what the hell is going on. Earlier this month he sent a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry asking about a bizarre boondoggle in which the State Department paid millions to film the sport:
The contract originally specified five trucks at a cost of $6 million (three satellite/microwave television broadcast trucks at the unit price of $1,786,779, two Ford ES350 trucks at a unit price of $157,300 and various communications equipment). The primary use of the vehicles was for "live sporting events, such as Buzkashi, Soccer, Cricket and other sports."2 On September 16, 2013, the contract was amended to require only 3 trucks, at a cost of $3.6 million (one satellite/microwave television broadcast truck at the unit price of $1,589,557 and two Ford ES350 trucks at a unit price of $568,062).3 SIGAR has been told that the contractor received unspecified compensation for costs incurred under the original contract."

So really, just how much bungling, how much waste, how much appeasement, how many episodes of TSA Kabuki Theatre, how many episodes of "workplace violence", just how many goat carcasses must be purchased by the dhimmified West before we just say "enough"?

How many headless goat carcasses will you tolerate?

How many headless citizens?

The answer, of course, should be zero.

And if you had to hesitate at all, even for a moment, if you are OK with even one single solitary taxpayer-funded goat carcass, or even one solitary headless citizen with blood running down your allegedly free street, in your allegedly free country then you're part of the problem.
