Web Desk: According to Dailymail, Obama Administration gave $200,000 to Al-Qaeda group and continued with payment, despite of learning that it was a designated terror organization.
A conservative think tank announced this week that Obama administration approved a $200,000 grant to a group affiliated with Al-Qaida.
In March 2014, the Obama Administration approved a fund of $200,000 for the agency based in Sudan. Internationally, this move of the Obama Administration got suspected because agency named ‘Islamic Relief Agency’ (ISRA) allegedly affiliated with the terror group.
It is said that not only did the government provide the grant, it also knew the ISRA was designated as a terror-financing organization a decade earlier in October 2004 for ties to Osama bin Laden.
The fund was awarded by the US Agency for International Development (USAID). It was awarded to help provide humanitarian aid including emergency food, water, sanitation, hygiene services etc.
