$34.4 million Agriculture Department Aide program but they don’t like soybeans….
Check it out:
Technically, this is not news — in that it sadly happens all too frequently — but the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction issued a report Thursday slamming a $34.4 million Agriculture Department aid program Afghanistan for trying to “create a market for soybean products” when “Afghans apparently have never grown or eaten soybeans before.”
The report faulted Agriculture for not having its contractor, the American Soybean Association (ASA), “conduct feasibility . . . studies” before starting the project in 2010.
