In 2017, the U.S. Department of Defense awarded a $459 million contract to AM General to deliver more than 2,000 Humvees to Afghanistan until 2023.
To analyze President Joe Biden's withdrawal from Afghanistan, a few news outlets have primarily relied on retired four-star Gen. Keane's knowledge, says Media Matters for America. Keane had appeared multiple times on cable news networks. Keane has criticized the withdrawal, who claims it jeopardizes U.S. national honor, says Media Matters for America.
Project on Government Oversight report said AM General is an example of an American corporation that profited from the U.S. military's continued presence in Afghanistan. At a Heritage Foundation event on January 28, 2020, Keane called for extending the U.S. involvement in Afghanistan. ''He failed to mention his company's interest in a protracted presence,'' said the report.
On September 7, 2017, Inside Defense report said that AM General got a $459 million foreign military sales order to sell 2,090 Humvees to Afghanistan. The order is part of a $2.2 billion firm-fixed-price contract to provide up to 11,560 humvees, supporting equipment, and spare parts for foreign military sales clients, according to a Defense Department notice dated August 29. By the end of February 2023, the contract is expected to be completed.
