From 2005-2010, the United States and other donor nations paid for 90 percent of the expenditures of the Afghan government, according to a new study by the Government Accountability Office (GAO). It found that the U.S. paid for 62 percent, while other donor nations paid 28 percent. This paid for budget items such as salaries for government employees, social security benefits, infrastructure projects, and training of the Afghan army.
