Clinton: Billions Wasted in Afghanistan

At a United Nations-sponsored conference on Afghanistan, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke out about Afghanistan’s current conditions: "For those of you who have been on the ground in Afghanistan, you have seen with your own eyes that a lot of these aid programs don't work," she said. She also stated the programs have “very little credibility” in the eyes of Afghans and the amount of money spent without solid results “heartbreaking.” On a separate note, Clinton said the Obama administration has dropped the “war on terror” phrase heavily touted by President Bush to describe the conflicts with al Qaeda.
