Ed Snowden: Afghan bunkers 18k lbs ‘MOAB’ bomb dropped on were built by CIA. and tweeted: The bomb dropped today in the middle of nowhere, Afghanistan, cost $314,000,000.

Today’s US politicians do not worry about the cost.

Ed Snowden continued: Eisenhower would have worried about it.

p.s. Ed Snowden is right – the ancient irrigation system’s change into bunkers was started by CIA funding. But I think it is only fair that our brother Abu Ivanka al-Amriki spent a chunk of $314,000,000 of US taxes to dismantle some of them again. Blink.

Nope, it’s “only” $16M for a MOAB. It’s already pretty expensive to replace some napalm canisters or some B-52 old school carpet bombing.
