John F. Sopko, the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), in an address at the Middle East Institute in Washington, D.C., laid out why Afghanistan remains "relevant" -- and a cause for outrage -- for every U.S. taxpayer and policymaker.

By the way, that figure doesn't include the costs of war-making.
