According to a new report from the Government Accountability Institute (GAI), millions of taxpayer dollars are being trafficked to third-world terrorists through food stamp fraud, and some of it is paying for terrorism right here, including the 1993 World Trade Center bombings. New York City detectives in the 1980s told a Senate subcommittee that the money was being “unwittingly” funneled to terrorists as folks simply tried to send money back home to relatives overseas through “hawalas,” a sort of trust transferring money through informal agents. Today, Pakistan alone receives more than $7 billion from the U.S. through hawala networks.

Millions of taxpayers dollars trafficked through food stamp fraud went to terrorists who funded their activities at home and abroad, according to an explosive report from the Government Accountability Institute (GAI).
The report from GAI, where Breitbart News Senior-Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer serves as president, highlighted several instances where money obtained through Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits fraud went to fund acts of terrorism, including the 1993 World Trade Center bombings and the 2013 Boston Marathon Bombing.
Although this method of using food stamp fraud money for terrorism has been around since the 1980s, it gained notoriety when New York City detectives testified before a Senate subcommittee about the 1993 World Trade Center bombings.
