Pentagon Has Awarded Contracts To Al-Qaeda In Afghanistan

A new independent report reveals that lucrative US military contracts have been granted to militant groups in Afghanistan with direct connections to the Taliban and Al-Qaeda.

The report, submitted to Congress by the US Army Suspension and Debarment Office, states that American officials are citing “due process rights” as a reason not to cancel the agreements with the extremists.

A Bloomberg article quotes John Sopko, the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction, who notes:

“I am deeply troubled that the US military can pursue, attack, and even kill terrorists and their supporters, but that some in the US government believe we cannot prevent these same people from receiving a government contract,” Spoko said.

The report continues:

"An audit showed that after 16 months, none of the agency’s essential program objectives have been reached and the money spent has mostly financed workshops and training sessions. The project is aimed at bolstering Afghanistan’s government before troop withdrawals planned for next year."

“It’s troubling that after 16 months, this program has not issued its first community grant,” Sopko said. “Rather, it has spent almost $50 million, about a quarter of the total program budget, on conferences, overhead and workshops.”

Regarding the 43 cases of contractors with militant connections, Sopko said the Army should “enforce the rule of common sense” in its suspension and debarment program.

“They may be enemies of the United States but that is not enough to keep them from getting government contracts,” according to the agency’s report.

So there you have it, while the Obama administration is funding, equipping, and training al Qaeda extremists in Syria to overthrow the Assad government, it is also awarding contracts to al Qaeda after a decade plus long war against “the terrorists” in Afghanistan.

Obama truly is the global head of Al Qaeda — bankrolling, arming and equipping terrorists around the world in order to achieve his administration’s geopolitical objectives — while simultaneously invoking the threat of terrorists domestically to destroy the bill of rights.
