Money that some say he swiped as he and his subordinates fled the troubled country as the Taliban neared the Prez palace. According to American media reports, the U.S inspector general tasked with investigating alleged misuse of aid money is looking into the very claims that millions went missing. That might be a tad difficult, however, because Ghani is currently in the wind and is believed to be somewhere in either in Qatar or the UAE (none of which wants to cooperate much with the West.)

“We haven’t proven that yet. We’re looking into that, actually,” the longtime inspector general, John Sopko, said during a House hearing in response to a question from Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY).

“There are allegations, but not only with President Ghani. There are allegations with senior officials in their finance ministry, their central bank and a number of other ministries walking off with millions of dollars,” he said.
