— The amount the State Department spent – per student, per day – on anti-terror training in North Africa, the Middle East, South Asia, and Central Asia in 2010 under its Anti-Terrorism Assistance (ATA) program.

But the State Department has not “developed specific, measurable, and outcome-oriented program objectives or implemented a mechanism for program evaluation,” its inspector general noted in a report issued Tuesday. “As a result, the Department has no assurance that the ATA program is achieving its intended statutory purposes or that the overall or individual programs are successful.”

Total spent on such programs worldwide since 9/11: $1.4 billion.
