The idiocy of this administration never ceases to amaze me.
The Biden administration has now reportedly agreed to terms with the Taliban to send aid to Afghanistan.
The Department of Treasury announced it will now approve some financial transactions with the Taliban.
You will have to excuse me on this one if I sound cold-hearted and skeptical, but I do not believe the Taliban can be trusted here.
The terrorist organization has done nothing, I mean NOTHING, to show that it has changed its ways.
Furthermore, we owe nothing to Afghanistan at this point.
Aside from Joe Biden’s botched withdrawal, the people of this country have done little to fight off the Taliban takeover, so why are we now about to send taxpayer money to help them.
Yet, that is exactly what is about to happen.
Deputy Secretary of the Treasury Wally Adeyemo stated, “The United States is the largest single provider of humanitarian assistance in Afghanistan.
“We are committed to supporting the people of Afghanistan, which is why Treasury is taking these additional steps to facilitate assistance.”
He added, “Treasury has provided broad authorizations that ensure NGOs, international organizations and the U.S. government can continue to provide relief to those in need.”
House Foreign Affairs Committee ranking member Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) slammed the move, saying that while he supports “efforts to provide life-saving humanitarian assistance directly to the Afghan people,” the new policy is “shortsighted” and will “offer broad sanctions carveouts [that] could result in using American taxpayer funds to reward, legitimize and enable” the Taliban.
He added, “Providing these exemptions under the guise of ‘humanitarian aid,’ and without any prior consultation with Congress, further undermines bipartisan support and faith in the administration’s transparency and decision-making.
“I remain deeply frustrated that the administration still can’t confirm what assistance programs have been restarted.
“This committee must be permitted to conduct oversight of foreign assistance resources and priorities.”
Personally, I think it is outright disgusting that we still have hundreds, if not thousands of Americans and Afghan allies still behind enemy lines, yet we are now going to send money to this country knowing full well the majority of that money will never be used for the purpose it is meant to serve.
