The U.S. has sent an unbelievable $146 billion to help with the reconstruction of Afghanistan over two decades, and continues to send more without revealing where the money is going.
The report was revealed by Judicial Watch recently regarding the State Department’s concerning lack of transparency.
NEW: The U.S. has dropped a ghastly $146B on Afghanistan reconstruction in the last 2 decades/billions more continue to be spent, but the Biden admin is blocking fed auditors from conducting their job of investigating where the money is going. READ: https://t.co/3qEqggomXK

“Of greatest concern to the Afghanistan watchdog is the State Department’s refusal to provide basic information for an audit involving efforts to ensure that ongoing programs supporting the people of Afghanistan do not result in the illegal transfer of U.S. taxpayer funds to the Taliban or the Haqqani Network,” the report stated.
“U.S. taxpayers deserve objective information concerning where their money is going and to whom it is being given,” it added.
TOLD YA SO: Rob Schmitt warned that the U.S. government might just be “dumb enough to give more money to the Taliban.”

“The U.S. allocated around $90 billion in security sector assistance to the ANDSF with the goal of developing an independent, self-sustaining force capable of combating threats. Nevertheless, the ANDSF collapsed paving the way for the Taliban to re-establish control of Afghanistan,” the report also noted based on the special inspector report.
Many have criticized the disastrous departure of the U.S. military under the Bide administration as a massive loss of funds and a strategic loss.
The U.S. military’s manner of leaving Afghanistan, and leaving itself, were both mistakes. We are paying for them already. https://t.co/mi9xgNKD33

In addition to wasted security spending, the U.S. military was forced to leave behind billions of dollars in military equipment that fell into the hands of the Taliban.
The new report shows the nation continues to send money to Afghanistan even though the nation is in the hands of the same kinds of radicals who were involved in 9/11 two decades ago.
The concern over money in Afghanistan adds to other problems at home regarding the economy and inflation as Americans seek answers.
