Report: Biden Has Handed Taliban Over $2 BILLION In 2 Years

• Summit News

A report by the Special Inspector General for Afghan Reconstruction (SIGAR) notes that the Biden administration has given $2.35 billion to Afghanistan over the past two years, despite the fact that it is now ruled by the Taliban again following the disastrous U.S. withdrawal in 2021.

The Washington Free Beacon shared details of the findings Tuesday, noting that the funds could be propping up the Taliban's terrorist government.

The SIGAR report found that approximately $1.7 billion "remained available for possible disbursement" at the time writing. The Beacon notes that "it is more than likely that a sizable portion of these funds will end up in the terror group's coffers."

The Taliban are viewing international aide as a "revenue stream," according to the report, which further states that the group is "comfortable accepting foreign support insofar as they can closely monitor the organizations, including restricting and controlling them, and claim some credit for the provision of the benefits."
