The Biden regime has made it clear which side it is on with $10 billion to Iran and $100 million to Gaza, which means to Hamas since there isn’t any entity in Gaza that has the power or will to keep the money away from Hamas. But wait! There are more enemies of America to fund, and Old Joe and his henchmen have been happy to fork over your hard-earned dough. One of the primary recipients has been the ardent Jeffersonians who govern Afghanistan in the wake of our woke military’s catastrophically botched withdrawal from that country in 2021: the Taliban.

Just The News reported Thursday that “a recently released federal watchdog report shows that the U.S. government has sent at least $11 million to the Taliban since the 2021 withdrawal of U.S. troops.”

$11 million is bad enough. But that’s a wildly low estimate as it leaves out the key excuse that the Biden regime uses to send our money over to Kabul: humanitarian aid. The Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) wrote in its May 2024 report, “U.S. Funds Benefitting the Taliban-Controlled Government: Implementing Partners Paid at Least $10.9 Million and Were Pressured to Divert Assistance,” that since the Taliban returned to power, “the U.S. government has continued to be the largest international donor supporting the Afghan people,” and that the Biden “has provided more than $2.8 billion in humanitarian and development assistance to help the people of Afghanistan.”

That $2.8 billion figure accords better with previous reports. Back in Aug. 2022, The Foreign Desk reported that “over the past fiscal year, this totals to over $1 billion to humanitarian, economic, and military assistance aid to Afghanistan.” And the money flow was continuing, as the Biden regime had just “pledged an additional $55 million in aid to Afghanistan.”

Antony Blinken and the Biden regime’s other foreign policy wonks would likely insist that this money was not sent to the Taliban, but to other groups that are operating in the country. But this is just as unrealistic and disingenuous as claiming that money sent to Gaza won’t go to Hamas. The aid money that has been sent to Afghanistan is ending up in the hands of the Taliban despite all the denials and claims to the contrary.

“Now,” said The Foreign Desk in that 2022 report, “humanitarian aid to the Afghan people is lining the pockets of the Taliban at the expense of innocent Afghans and American taxpayers alike.” Nothing has changed since then; if anything, the Taliban have consolidated their power even more than they had by mid-2022. Just The News notes, “Judicial Watch released an investigation recently showing that the Taliban has created fake NGOs to siphon away tax dollars.”

There is more. Read the rest here.
