Six Million Dollar Goats?

Post by Doublewolf » Sun Apr 03, 2016 8:52 pm

Among the more egregious examples of boondoggles he cited: “importing rare blond Italian goats to boost the cashmere industry.” The $6 million program included shipping nine male goats to western Afghanistan from Italy, setting up a farm, lab and staff to certify their wool.

A chart summarizing task force initiatives shows the inspector general did not conduct an audit of the program. The program, according to a contractor’s analysis, may have created as many as 350 jobs. Sopko ripped the Pentagon and the task force for failing to track its spending. It’s not unclear, for instance, if the goats were eaten.

The US military spent 6 million dollars shipping nine goats to Afghanistan, and they lost the goats. Makes me not want to pay taxes.

I would be more worried about the US plans to shrink our military. To be honest I think is a bad time to be doing due to conflicts already occurring around the world right now. And wow 6 million dollars just to certify wool. Man we just blow money off at such random things, well it's America it's what we do
