Afghanistan: Video Shows Drunk, Stoned US Defense Contractors

Video

October 18, 2012 "
Information Clearing House" - Cellphone footage obtained exclusively by ABC appears to show a group of drunken, stoned U.S. security contractors in the Afghan capital of Kabul.

In the video, a bare-chested man identified as a security manager working for Jorge Scientific hobbles around, barely conscious in front of the camera. A second man, who is said to be the company's medical officer, stares into the lens, apparently under influence of drugs.

ABC reports that Jorge Scientific had won a $47 million U.S. government contract to train Afghan police. The network says it obtained the video from two former employees of the company, who claim similar incidents occurred frequently.

The contractor, Virginia-based Jorge Scientific, has won almost $1 billion in U.S. government contracts.
