Description: 

In 2008, the Department of Defense bough 20 Italian-made twin propeller military transport aircraft, called G222s, to give to the Afghan military. Turns out, the things aren't made for the Afghan climate, nor did we buy all the parts necessary for the things to actually FLY. Just another example of the US government burning our taxpayer money. The Resident (aka Lori Harfenist) discusses.
