1. Here is the @USGAO report: @USAID vetted PA creditors to ensure that the program assistance would not provide support to entities or individuals associated w terrorism & also conducted external assessments and financial audits of PA ministries of Health & Finance and Planning. 2. USAID documentation showed that, as required, officials checked the vetting status of each PA creditor within 12 months before USAID signed its debt relief grant agreements with the PA.

1. As @DanielBShapiro notes, this is a hostile act to ... Israel. And of course the Palestinian people. The US is ceding space to #Hamas in #Gaza. No security professional recommends an aid cut off in Gaza - none.
wtop.com/national/2018/… 2. To the doubters, those without facts @tanstaaflpnw Read the GAO report on @usaid assistance to the Palestinians. gao.gov/assets/700/693…. @USAIDWBG had the highest level of accountability, results and integrity in @usaid. Clean @USGAO audits are the gold standard.
