  • Rumors
  • US Gave $43 Million to Taliban in Spring of 2001 According to a May 17, 2001 AP article, the $43 Million was Humanitarian Aid and Bypassed the Taliban. Excerpt from the news report: The donation includes 65,000 tons of wheat, as well as vegetable oil and blended foods like corn-soy blend, which are particularly useful in feeding the sick and undernourished. Funds also are being earmarked for health and shelter programs.

    U.S. aid to Afghanistan bypasses the ruling Taliban militia, which controls the bulk of the country but has no official relationship with the United States because of its alleged role as a sponsor of terrorism.
