The Biden gang gave $1 Billion to Afghanistan after the Taliban takeover. Now Biden’s Treasury Department and USAID won’t say where the money went.
The Daily Caller reports:
The government body tasked with monitoring U.S. reconstruction efforts in Afghanistan said in a recent report it encountered insurmountable barriers from Biden administration agencies in its attempts to hold them accountable for over $1 billion in aid.
The Treasury Department and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) refused to comply with transparency requests from the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) “in any capacity,” while the State Department selectively released information regarding the $1.1 billion in aid sent since August 2021, according to SIGAR. That violates SIGAR’s congressional mandate and undermines the American people’s interests, the organization claimed in a quarterly report, released Wednesday.
“SIGAR, for the first time in its history, is unable this quarter to provide Congress and the American people with a full accounting of this U.S. government spending due to the noncooperation of several U.S. government agencies,” the report said. “USAID and State legal counsels’ claim that SIGAR’s jurisdiction does not include such matters is not only contrary to the law, but a gross deviation from over 14 years of precedent set by three prior Administrations.”
The $1.1 billion assistance in question comes from the State Department and USAID for “food and cash support, nutrition, healthcare, protection for women and children and agricultural inputs,” according to a Sept. 23 USAID statement.
Biden was wrong in the way he handled Afghanistan in giving the country back to the Taliban along with billions in weapons and arms. The Biden gang considered this a success.

HotAir put Biden’s actions as follows:
It turns out that the United States is still the largest provider of foreign aid to Afghanistan, and the Biden Administration is working assiduously and against the law to hide what is happening with that cash. AYFKM?
USAID is involved in the movement of illegal immigrants through South America and into the United States. It has been involved in numerous shady deals. It’s being led by Samantha Powers who was involved in the fake Trump-Russia collusion sham.
Based on those involved with this who knows what is going on with another billion to the Taliban?
