The government agency responsible for defense contractors is telling its personnel to wash their hands, as much as possible, of any official involvement with “friends and former colleagues” who are stuck in Afghanistan.
In an internal Defense Contract Management Agency email reported by the Daily Caller on Saturday evening, the agency made it clear it couldn’t do anything for these unlucky souls and that the contractors should say so.
