Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Twitchy.com: “'How much is this per hostage?' US to send $64 million in 'humanitarian aid' to Afghanistan (and people have questions)”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The Biden administration has already left behind tens of billions of dollars worth of U.S. equipment and weapons in Afghanistan (not to mention an entire airbase), and now there’s some extra money going to that country that the State Department says is humanitarian aid:

Secretary Blinken says US taxpayer money for Afghanistan won't be sent to Taliban, but to NGOs, nonprofits, etc.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Monday a new pledge of $64 million in U.S. assistance to Afghanistan would circumvent the Taliban and go directly to nongovernment organizations and U.N. agencies providing relief to impoverished Afghans. https://t.co/gGDhJUTMsp
