"The Department of Defense poured $43 million into an "ill-conceived" project to build a gas station in Afghanistan — "an outrageous waste" of taxpayers' money and 140 times more than it should have cost, according to a government watchdog.

Even more troubling, according to the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction report was the Defense Department couldn't even explain why the compressed natural gas filling station was so expensive. "In comparison, [the inspector general] found that a CNG station in neighboring Pakistan costs no more than $500,000 to construct.

Really? A $43 million gas station? In Afghanistan? And we, the American taxpayers, paid for it? And nobody in the government knows anything about it? WTF???????

Hey, Washington, D.C., what the _____ are you doing?
