20 individuals and companies have been receiving U.S. contracts though they may be simultaneously supporting the insurgency in Afghanistan →

The Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction listed the companies and individuals in a letter to numerous U.S. officials responsible for contractors in Afghanistan.

As of now, none of these companies or ones listed in previous letters have been suspended or debarred from receiving U.S. contracts. One company had one contract for $20,000 terminated, but otherwise they are all still eligible to receive U.S. taxpayer money even though they may be actively supporting the insurgency.
