U.S. aid funneled to al-Qaida?

A Palestinian Authority investigation last week has accused one of its own top leaders of funneling money to al-Qaida-linked groups in the Gaza Strip.

WND first reported in 2008, quoting informed Mideast security officials, that Mahmoud Dahlan, had been providing financial support to al-Qaida allies in the Gaza Strip, including some of the most radical Islamist organizations in the territory.

Dahlan, a leader in PA President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah party, coordinates security closely with the U.S. His security agencies have been the direct recipient of over $300 million in U.S. financial aid and scores of U.S. weapons transfers for over a decade.

Also, the U.S. has provided training for Dahlan’s forces since the early 1990s.
