Summary:

USA Today used FOIA to obtain an inspector general's report on a $25 million grant from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to the United Nations for some projects in Afghanistan. The report found that some of the money ended up in entirely different countries, while other funds were devoted to projects of such inefficiency as to be nearly worthless.
