Non-profit humanitarian agency World Vision United States improperly transacted with the Islamic Relief Agency (ISRA) in 2014 with approval from the Obama administration, sending government funds to an organization that had been sanctioned over its ties to terrorism, according to a new report.

Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R., Iowa) recently released a report detailing the findings of an investigation his staff began in February 2019 into the relationship between World Vision and ISRA.

The probe found that World Vision was not aware that ISRA had been sanctioned by the U.S. since 2004 after funneling roughly $5 million to Maktab al-Khidamat, the predecessor to Al-Qaeda controlled by Osama Bid Laden.

However, that ignorance was born from insufficient vetting practices, the report said.

“World Vision works to help people in need across the world, and that work is admirable,” Grassley said in a statement. “Though it may not have known that ISRA was on the sanctions list or that it was listed because of its affiliation with terrorism, it should have. Ignorance can’t suffice as an excuse. World Vision’s changes in vetting practices are a good first step, and I look forward to its continued progress.”

Several years ago, one of our translators, “Tanya”, translated this extraordinary video from Bulgarian news. It is the only video that we ever did that was removed nearly instantly from every platform we uploaded it to, without explanation. After Obama was out of office, we found it was able to remain up at and elsewhere. This seems like a good time to post it again.

  1. I’m sure I’ve heard this excuse before; we have no knowledge of wrongdoing.
    Then the question: for you look for wrongdoing?
    And the inevitable answer: no we didn’t.
    Conclusion: if you don’t look for something, it’s almost inevitable that you’ll never find it.
