REPORT: Obama Administration Approved $200K Grant To Group With Ties To Al Qaeda

When the liberal media is finished obsessing over their fake Russia narrative, perhaps they could look into this explosive story about the Obama administration. It seems they approved a substantial grant for a group with ties to terrorism.

The Obama administration approved a $200,000 grant to a group in Sudan with ties to Al Qaeda even though it had been designated a terrorist-financing organization by the U.S. years earlier, a conservative think tank revealed this week.

Further, an agency official acknowledged the prior administration allowed taxpayer money to flow to the group even after its designation was discovered.

The 2014 grant to the Islamic Relief Agency, through the U.S. Agency for International Development, was revealed by Sam Westrop of the Middle East Forum in a story for the National Review.

“More stunningly, government officials specifically authorized the release of at least $115,000 of this grant even after learning that it was a designated terror organization,” Westrop wrote in the article.

USAID has since reviewed its policies, though the Trump administration stressed this all occurred in the Obama years.

How does a story like this escape the media’s attention in the first place? They just don’t look for anything that might make their precious Obama look bad.
