Yeah, I probably need to explain that above a certain level in the Global GWOT, everything is fake, without exception. Don’t worry, you beautiful and blessed females of the indubitably chosen-by-something race, I love you anyway – RB
Nigerian boxtops stole $15b from imaginary anti-Boko Haram campaign

Note the properly haughty look, which bespeaks a man of integrity – RB
About $15b was stolen from the supposed crusade against Boko Haram in Nigeria under the previous government, diverted through fraudulent arms contracts, Vice-Pres Osinbajo says. Several allies of ex-Pres Goodluck Jonathan, who held office from 2010 to 2015, have been put on trial after being accused of awarding fake arms contracts worth $2b. Pres Buhari, who came to office last year and whose dignified visage you see above, has vowed to fight corruption and recover “stolen funds.” Those facing charges included former National Security Adviser Sambo Dasuki, ex-military chiefs and several contractors. Speaking at a university in Ibadan, Osinbajo said the amount stolen was more than half of Nigeria’s current foreign exchange reserves of $27b. Trying to sound as much as he could like Pindosi TV gangbusters, he opined:
It is important to send a message that no public officer can steal the resources of this country and expect to escape.
As a result of all this Pindo-induced GWOT racketeering and military fraud, Nigeria is facing its worst economic crisis in decades, with two-thirds of the country’s 36 states struggling to pay salaries to workers. The government says it inherited an “empty treasury” when it took office last year. Pres Buhari’s political opponents accuse him of waging a witchhunt against the previous administration (which is normal in these splendid Pindo-advised democracies worldwide – RB). During Jonathan’s rule, soldiers complained that despite the military’s huge budget, they were still almost completely unequipped. Meanwhile, Boko killed thousands of people in north-eastern Nigeria and kidnapped hundreds of schoolgirls to use as sex slaves. Score another point for Pindo military education.
