Team Biden Has Transferred $1.1 Billion To Taliban Since Pullout; Won’t Explain Why
The Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction, a government overseer commission established in 2008, was told to take a hike by the U.S. government when he dared to inquire as to why the U.S. paid out over $1.1 billion to the terrorist regime controlling Afghanistan after pulling out of the country.
A government watchdog tasked with overseeing the reconstruction of Afghanistan has requested information that they hoped could explain the post-withdrawal spending as part of the review of the “reconstruction” expenses totaling over $146 billion since the war began.
The requests were part of the routine investigation designed to present its findings to congress that authorized a blank check on the war expenditures.
The investigators were flatly refused by both Pentagon and State Department and were forced to announce that, for the first time in 14 years, they will not be able to fulfill their duties to congress and the American people.
“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 non-cooperation of U.S. agencies.”
SIGAR report submitted to U.S. congress.
Their attempts to appeal to the higher-ups in Biden’s administration similarly fell on deaf ears-“surprisingly” no one in the administration or, for that matter, the congress itself seems too eager to find out where the money in our never-ending, never won wars seems to disappear.
Well, no one besides the taxpayers that made that money with their sweat and toil, but their opinion doesn’t seem to matter much to anyone.
“and the Treasury Department refused to cooperate with SIGAR in any capacity, while the State Department was selective in the information it provided pursuant to SIGAR’s audit and quarterly data requests.“
The administration’s refusal to cooperate with yet another government watchdog agency is yet another direct violation of the watchdog’s specific mandate and proof that this administration does not hold itself accountable to the American people.
Welcome to the ‘new normal.”
Biden administration is also refusing to release information that could shed light on its failure to obey standing U.S. laws prohibiting the transfer of American tax funds to the Taliban. Laws, which the administration seems to be routinely breaking.
SIGAR’s communications and requests for interviews with state officials involved in making decisions connected to these issues were ignored, and on-site travel was prohibited.
Biden’s pet program that airlifted into the U.S. over 70000 unvetted afghani muslims, many with ties to terrorism, was also deemed an untouchable topic for the investigative committee.
“Historically, State and USAID officials have supported SIGAR’s mission and honored my office’s requests,.Inexplicably, this long track record of cooperation seems to have abruptly ended. Agency officials now appear to have adopted a premeditated position of obstruction.”
Inspector Sopko, head of SIGAR.
In response to SIGAR’s inquiries, the state department’s spokes head Ned Pierce expressed his outrage at the previous SIGAR’s report :
“does not reflect the consensus view of the State Department or of the U.S. Government, for that matter,” and the fact that it was not given to the State Department for review and editing before release.
A watchdog agency must run its findings by the organization it’s supposed to watch?
Both the State department’s head Antony Blinken and the professional racist running USAID, Obama’s protege Samantha Powel have ignored Mr. Sopko’s requests for cooperation.
“The coordinated efforts by State and USAID officials to deny SIGAR access to information and assistance are unprecedented, the billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars that have been spent and continue to be spent in support of the Afghan government and the Afghan people warrant independent oversight, and the law requires it.”
Besides trying to figure out how trillions of American dollars ended up in the hands of our sworn enemy, SIGAR was also tasked with figuring out how brave and loyal afghani army we’ve spent years training managed to roll over and play dead faster than any Frenchman in the history of white flag waving.
They were also supposed to report on whose hands precisely billions of U.S. army military equipment ended up in after the administration left it to the muslims of the Taliban.
State Department decided answers to these questions were not worth investigating and went on to send out an internal direction prohibiting any of its employees from cooperating with the investigative commission and instead directed SIGAR to its legal counsel.
The lack of cooperation and outright obstruction is illegal under section 7 of Inspector General Act, but hey, who are they gonna call? Ghostbusters?
Since the investigative committee’s establishment, SIGUR has conducted six audits and discovered over 10,680 000 dollars that the government and army officials misspent or embezzled.
The administration had to put a stop to that.
