Who corrupted Afghanistan?

In one of his testimonies before the U.S. Congress on situation in Afghanistan, John Spoko – Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction – made the following remarks on Afghanistan’s corruption dilemma:

The United States contributed to the growth of corruption by injecting tens of billions of dollars into the Afghan economy using flawed oversight in contracting practices and partnering with malign power brokers ……… the corrosive impact corruption has had on our ability to meet strategic goals in Afghanistan, putting our 15-year, $114 billion investment at risk.”

The US Congress has created the Office of the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) to provide independent and objective oversight of Afghanistan reconstruction projects and activities.
