Warlord Inc: Extortion and Corruption Along The U.S. Supply chain in Afghanistan

In this video, we will be talking about a US government report in 2010, detailing how private contractors hired by the US, via a $2.16 Billion contract, to bring US supplies to their base, along the way had to go through a journey of bribes and protection rackets, to Warlords, Commanders, the Taliban, insurgents and Afghan officials. Many of the subcontractors had to pay Warlords of small militias, who controlled certain highway routes, to protect their trucks when passing certain areas, through fear of being attacked another time. Other Coalition forces had no choice but to work with criminals linked to drug smuggling and human rights abuses. The DoD turned a blind eye to these reports and had no visibility past their base.
