The Afghan war remains one of the most profligate military undertakings in the US history, which still in 2017 continues pump taxpayers’ money. Instances of frivolous expenditure during this war is nothing new but now a report by Inspector General John Sopko unearthed how Pentagon actually wasted 28 million USD in the name of camouflaged military uniforms.

The report accuses Pentagon of choosing a forest pattern uniform in a country only 2.1% of which is covered by forests. While the army needed desert pattern uniforms, Sopko wrote that  the decision was “not based on an evaluation of its appropriateness for the Afghan environment.” The pattern was chosen by Afghan Defence minister Abdul Rahim Wardak because he liked the design. Mr. Sopko wrote in his report, “We wasted $28 million of taxpayers’ money in the name of fashion, because the defence minister thought that that pattern was pretty.”
