What was the purpose of Biden’s pullout from Afghanistan again? So we could send them money without any inconvenient terrorist attacks getting in the way? I’ve spent a lot of time reporting on Biden’s betrayal but these numbers are still staggering.
After the latest earthquake, the Biden administration is sending another $12 million in aid.
The money, like much of our aid, is going through “USAID humanitarian partners”, which is to say NGOs that the Taliban allow to operate, which either pay money to the Taliban or are the Taliban.
Samantha Power’s USAID boasts that “the United States is the single largest humanitarian donor in Afghanistan, providing nearly $2 billion in humanitarian assistance for Afghans since mid-August 2021, including more than $1.46 billion from USAID.”
Abolishing USAID would be a fantastic way to defund terrorists and save a lot of money.
$2 billion. To a terrorist-controlled entity. It’s incredible.
In August 2021, I predicted that, “Biden Will Fund Taliban Through ‘Humanitarian Aid'”, but even I’m blown away by the sheer scope of this.
Meanwhile, the Taliban are doing things like this to American aid workers.
Almost 20 staff members of a charity organization operating in central Afghanistan, including one U.S. national, have been arrested by regional officials in the Taliban-controlled nation, a spokesman for the provincial government in Ghor province told CBS News. The 18 detained aid workers were arrested for “propagating and promoting Christianity,” a violation of the Taliban’s strict regulations on all non-governmental groups, according to Abdul Wahid Hamas, the spokesman for the regional administration in Ghor province.
A local employee of The International Assistance Mission (IAM) in Ghor province also told CBS News, on the condition that he not be named, that the detained foreign employee was a U.S. woman who works at the office.
Has she been released? Did the Biden admin even threaten to hold up its latest cash infusion until she is? Don’t bet on it.
