Getting Out Of Afghanistan

This is an article from late January 2015 about the removing of large amounts of material from Afghanistan when U.S. forces were reduced. I found it to be interesting and, although some may have seen it before, I thought it is worth linking to for those who have not seen it.

Quote:
By the time we thought about leaving Afghanistan, wed been tossing gear into the country for more than a decade. This is the story of how we moved out.

they said hundreds of millions$ [ 420 million ] worth of equipment was lost--did not know exactly where it was! not surprising at all--lost/stolen-yes/broken down/etc
..looks like leasing property was big money to some Afghans
