A new report has surfaced that is more than a bit disturbing.
A group that received U.S. funds via the Obama administration has been directly linked to al-Qaida.
Funding Known Terrorists
Obama is going to have a tough time talking himself out of this one.
Everything stems from a donation routed to the Islamic Relief Agency (ISRA) in 2014.
This group is also known as the Islamic African Relief Agency (IARA)
In 1997, it was established the ISRA was involved with Maktab al-Khidamet (MK), who, with Osama bin Laden, would become what we know to be the al-Qaida.
Over the next three years, it was estimated ISRA had funneled $5 million to the terrorist group.
Our own government noted the ISRA had secured funding to help find “safe harbor” for bin Laden.
The U.S office of the group, IARA, had been funneling money to the main office, ISRA.
In 2004, it was discovered the American office of the group had transferred more than $1 million to ISRA.
Then, in 2014, more than $700,000 was approved to go to World Vision, Inc.
Of that money, $200,000 was sent to ISRA.
How They Did It
World Vision knew ISRA was on the designated terrorist organization list.
After being refused a license to deal with ISRA, the organization petitioned the Obama administration to grant them a new license to pay ISRA the money.
According to the petition, the payment was for “monies owed for work performed.”
Some three months later, the administration, after “close collaboration and consultations with the Department of State,” approved a one-time payment to the terrorist organization.
For the record, John Kerry was secretary of State at the time, who would have had to approve the payment.
This is not a conspiracy theory; there is documented proof that the Obama administration allowed taxpayer funds to be used to fund the known terrorist organization.
Well, Mr. Obama, what do you have to say about this?
