The Special Inspector General for Afghanistan’s Reconstruction (SIGAR) has said in its 13th quarterly report that Taliban controls more of the country than at any time since U.S. troops invaded in 2001.

The US government watchdog says nearly 71.7% of Afghanistan is under the influence of the government, and because of the lack of security many Americans, and ‘even Afghan officials’ are unable to travel in different parts of Afghanistan to control the projects funded by the United States.

SIGAR has also mentioned on its report that due to the absence of their inspectors in a number of the U.S. government projects millions of dollars are being wasted for ghost schools, teachers and students.

Last June, the Ministers of Education and Higher Education have told to Afghan lawmakers that a large number of schools and teachers were forged by the former ministers of education appointed in Hamid Karzai’s government.
