A new United Nations report on corruption in Afghanistan has found that $3.9bn, twice the nation's domestic revenue, was paid in bribes in 2012.

Is this winning?

When the USA leaves do the USA taxpayers still have to pay up on continued bribes while austerity hits hard at home?

Obama buying their hearts and minds but here at home, not so much. More outsourcing of our money.
