US Government Spends Millions Building Roads Overseas (TheNewspaper)
Monday September 17th, 2012
A little known US government agency has spent hundreds of millions of US taxpayer dollars to build roads in foreign countries -- including those openly hostile to American interests. The Government Accountability Office (GAO) on Wednesday released an audit of the Millennium Challenge Corporation program that was supposed to build 1132 miles of road in Armenia, Cape Verde, Georgia, Honduras, Nicaragua and Vanuatu. Only 387 miles were actually built.
