Dropping the ball

A report by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction to be released on Monday criticizes the Pentagon's and State Department's management of projects planned under the $400 million Afghanistan Infrastructure Fund (NYT). The seven projects were to be completed by mid-2013, but now look unlikely to be completed until well after the withdrawal of NATO troops in 2014, putting at risk the already shaky support of the Afghan populace for the U.S. and Afghan governments.
