excerpt:
“But far from discriminating, USAID has become a growing source of
funds for Christian groups in the Muslim world. USAID spent $57
million from 2001-2005 (out of a total of $390 million to
nongovernmental agencies) to fund almost a dozen projects run by
faith-based organizations in Pakistan, Indonesia, and Afghanistan,
according to records obtained by the Freedom of Information Act. Only
5 percent of that sum went to a Muslim group, the Aga Khan Foundation
of the USA, which was given approximately $3.5 million for projects in
Afghanistan and Pakistan.

And even that amount is well below what the Aga Khan Foundation
received under the Clinton administration, including $4.9 million in
fiscal 2000 alone.”
