 Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction confirms US tax dollars end up in Taliban hands

The Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction, John F. Sopko, has confirmed the obvious: American tax dollars ended up in the hands of the Taliban. Beyond that, American weaponry for jihadists ended up in Kashmir and even Hamas.

“Inspector general confirms American tax dollars end up in Taliban hands,” by Adam Andrzejewski, WND, April 7, 2024:

Topline: The United States has sent $2.6 billion of humanitarian aid to Afghanistan since August 2021, some of which wound up in the hands of the Taliban terrorist organization, according to a recent Inspector General report.

Key Facts: Afghanistan does not have the infrastructure to support electronic money transfers, so the United Nations flies stacks of physical U.S. cash into the country. The money goes to groups fighting the drought and famine in the region.

Sometimes the groups can use the U.S. dollars, but they also need afghanis — Afghanistan’s currency — to pay employees and vendors. So, the groups exchange their cash through private banks.

But many private banks in Afghanistan do not have enough afghanis to support the U.N., since the Taliban controls the money supply.

To get more afghanis, the private banks auction off the U.N. cash to the highest bidder. Oftentimes, that’s the Taliban-controlled Da Afghanistan Bank, which makes a profit for the Taliban because of the currency exchange rate.

Once the exchange occurs, the same physical U.S. dollars flown in by the U.N. are now held in the Taliban’s bank….
