Afghanistan's economy is worsening and its security deteriorating after the U.S. invests billions of dollars squandered on projects that never came to be

Afghanistan's economy is worsening and its security deteriorating despite more than a decade of reconstruction efforts and over USD 100 billion poured into the country, according to the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), an independent oversight agency created by the U.S. Congress in 2008.
The agency's investigation, conducted between October and December of last year, paints a grim picture of the country — including millions of dollars squandered on projects that never came to be, a resurgent Taliban, infiltration by the so-called Islamic State and a handful of guilty pleas from U.S. military personnel in bribery cases.
