Corruption Suspected in Airlift of Billions in Cash From Kabul

Corruption Suspected in Airlift of Billions in Cash From Kabul 25 Jun 2010 More than $3 billion in cash has been openly flown out of Kabul International Airport in the past three years, a sum so large that U.S. investigators believe top Afghan officials and their associates are sending billions of diverted U.S. aid and logistics dollars and drug money to financial safe havens abroad. The cash--packed into suitcases, piled onto pallets and loaded into airplanes--is declared and legal to move. Officials believe some of the cash, if not most, is siphoned from Western aid projects and U.S., European and NATO contracts to provide security, supplies and reconstruction work for coalition forces in Afghanistan.
