In a report about badly accounted-for US money for the Afghan security forces, AAN’s Kate Clark is quoted:

Kate Clark, a senior analyst with the Afghanistan Analysts Network, said the Interior Ministry, has always had a reputation for corruption.

“Generally, having such huge sums of foreign money funding the government — rather than it coming from a nation’s taxpayers — makes it more likely for money to go astray,” Clark said. There’s an inherent likelihood of corruption, and if you then have lax oversight … then I’m not surprised if money goes missing.”
