Brief Executive Summary
Senator Tom Coburn investigated numerous instance in which millions of dollars were thrown at duplicative programs that were marred by waste, abuse, and lack of accountability. The report uncovers examples of inefficient spending and waste that further validate its stance such as the DOJ illegally allowing grantees access to more than $500 million, collaborating and funding Muslim Brotherhood U.S affiliates and other entities with ties to terrorism, and finally spending millions on preventative grants whose outcome is unclear due to the lack of data and measurements.
