Gene Aloise, Deputy Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction

Most of the troops are coming home, but that doesn't mean there isn't still work to do in Afghanistan. Every year, the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) assembles a "high risk" list. It outlines which areas of the reconstruction effort are most vulnerable to waste, fraud and abuse. The list also helps the armed services focus their reconstruction efforts and correct problems. Deputy SIGAR Gene Aloise joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss this year's findings and their implications.
