With government corruption on the rise, you have to wonder why President Obama built a $34M building in the middle of the Afghanistan desert that nobody will ever use.
The windowless, two-story, 64,000-square-foot building is the length of a football field and has all the amenities you’d expect at a headquarters in the United States. But nobody plans to use it.
Military commanders insisted three years ago that the building was unnecessary. American troops are being pulled out of Afghanistan, so investing in the region didn’t make a whole lot of sense.
Our Commander in Chief erected the building anyway.
It’s not clear which government contractors helped with this project, but it’s likely that a back room handshake was all that was needed to keep the project alive. As long as our dollars are filling these companies’ pockets, Obama can keep increasing his power.
What would you suggest the government spend this $34M on instead? Tell us in the comments below!
