From the Introduction: "In order to understand the issues confronting the ongoing U.S. effort in Afghanistan, the Federal Spending Oversight (FSO) Subcommittee conducted on-the-ground oversight of U.S. spending in-country from April 14th to 16th, 2018. This mission consisted of more than a dozen meetings and four off-site visits over the course of two and a half days in Afghanistan. The bipartisan FSO team met with Afghans from both the national government and a non-governmental organization (NGO); military and State Department personnel;and the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR). The team also visited the Defense Logistics Agency's demilitarization and disposal facility at Bagram Air Base; an incomplete and abandoned hotel adjacent to the U.S. Embassy that was financed through the Overseas Private Investment Corporation;the Afghanistan Department of the Interior; and the offices of Integrity Watch Afghanistan. This is an initial majority report of that mission, the team's findings, and observations from on the ground amidst America's 'Forever War.'"
