WASHINGTON — A federal agency that disburses billions of dollars in humanitarian aid, disaster relief, and pro-democracy programs every year, has inadvertently funneled American taxpayer funds to individuals and entities with "terrorist affiliations" and lacks the safeguards to prevent such incidents from recurring, an internal audit has revealed.
In a report entitled "Audit of the Adequacy of USAID's Antiterrorism Vetting Procedures," dated November 6 and obtained by Fox News, U.S. Agency for International Development Inspector General Donald A. Gambatesa concluded USAID's "policies, procedures, and controls are not adequate to reasonably ensure against providing assistance to terrorists."
