WASHINGTON (Reuters)- The U.S. Army has refused to bar 43 individuals or companies from getting U.S. contracts in Afghanistan despite information that they support the Taliban or other enemies of U.S. forces, a government watchdog said on Tuesday.

John Sopko, the Special Inspector General for Afghan Reconstruction (SIGAR), said he was concerned by the Army's refusal to follow his office's recommendations to prevent alleged supporters of the Taliban, the Haqqani network and al Qaeda from getting or keeping U.S. government contracts.

"I am deeply troubled that the U.S. military can pursue, attack and even kill terrorists and their supporters, but that some in the U.S. government believe we cannot prevent these same people from receiving a government contract," Sopko wrote in an introduction to his office's quarterly report on the U.S. reconstruction effort in Afghanistan.

The official, who spoke to reporters on condition of anonymity, also predicted that July job numbers due on Friday would show a similar increase in part-time workers due largely to the furlough of 650,000 Defense Department employees.
Bummer. 650,000 people hurting bad because we are broke.
WASHINGTON (Reuters)- Lockheed Martin Corp (NYS:LMT) and the Pentagon have reached agreement on orders for the next two batches of F-35 fighter jets, a deal worth over $7 billion (4 billion pounds), a person briefed on the discussions told Reuters on Monday.
Opppps, guess we arent really broke after all.
U.S. reconstruction aid to Afghanistan is approaching $100 billion after more than a decade of war. Much of this money has gone to train Afghan military forces. Federal agencies have asked Congress to approve more than $10.7 billion for Afghanistan reconstruction programs in the fiscal year that starts October 1.

Yeah we arent broke, except when it is for out own people. Maybe we can lay off a few more HUNDRED THOUSAND workers and give then another couple billion, I am sure the Taliban can use it.

There is definitely fat in our defense budget. We should be looking not only at equipment but manpower in Europe.
And bases. Not sure that it is necessary to have military bases in every corner of the world anymore considering the effectiveness of rapid transport these days.

Also, there's a lot of duplicity in the military.

The real losers right now is the American people. I am holding out hope for the next couple of days that there might be a compromise for our economic future. The government are not job creators but can destroy jobs. They are talking of lowering the taxes on corporations from 35% down to 28%. We tax our companies more then anyother country in the world. Plus tax breaks for hiring again. Plus there is talks to finally open up the pipeline they have been delaying on from Canada. If both sides use their heads and think of people first and are not pig headed, this might be the first step.

Spelling? You live in Florida. The place where after 240 years, you still can't get the whole voting thing done right. Hilarious. It's just counting. I think we should make you dumbasses start voting a year early, both for the extra practice and so we can all go check your math.

Lol, what an idiot! What makes you think that I live in Florida? I have only been to Florida once in my life and it was miserable. Get your facts straight.
Because you wrote "Orlando, FL" under the "Hometown" header on your profile. Are you saying that you didn't? Where do you live then?

It was there yesterday and you changed it today. Someone commented on it then too. Let's see if I have this straight - you make fun of West Virginia but are too embarrassed to let anyone know what state you're in? Wow.

"It was there yesterday and you changed it today". Yeah, right. And when was I making fun of West Virginia? I thought that I was making fun of a person who was making fun of West Virginia. I am willing to bet that I have lived in West Virginia longer than you. But isn't this supposed to be a site to discuss political issues? It seems like it is only a competition to see who can hurl the best insult.
Maybe you should re-read your comments. And again, I wasn't the only person to see your Orlando location. It was commented on. You remain the only troll that hasn't made a political statement. The rest of us have. If you don't like the way it's going, the scroll button is on the right.

Homey throws insults very good himself, Homey never knew about this competition, maybe for 2nd place behind Homey with Homey so far ahead Homey has a clear horizon behind him, Homey has no worries at all.
