Pentagon Would Face Costly Lawsuits If US Ended Afghanistan War
Military made contracts anticipating years of war
Since February 29 of 2020, the US has had a peace deal in place, intending to withdraw from Afghanistan on May 1 of 2021. The US military was always averse to that, but seems to have been basing its contracts on the idea it wouldn’t happen.
Former financial officials are warning that if the US does leave Afghanistan, either on May 1 or any time in 2021, the Pentagon would be facing down a “barrel full of lawsuits” from contracts that had not been fulfilled yet.
“Even if the Pentagon gets its way and keeps the war going beyond 2021, this is an embarrassing way to go about it, and should once again draw attention to the Pentagon trying to avoid military pullouts by appealing to the momentum the war already has.” — author Jason Ditz
