Report: US Funds for Afghanistan Reach Taliban

Billions of dollars in United States funds transferred to Afghanistan under a contract for mass transit reached the Taliban jihadist group, according to a Sunday evening report by the Washington Post.

The report was based on the results of an undercover investigation by the U.S. Army, which revealed that four of the eight companies who signed contracts to provide public transportation service were connected to the Taliban.
