Pakistani Aid Unabated
The lamestream media told you:
The Associated Press reported on Friday that U.S. Congress has voted to withhold $33 million in aid to Pakistan, $1M for each year of a prison sentence handed to a Pakistani doctor who helped the U.S. locate Osama bin Laden. Congress was reportedly outraged at the punishment, and has been increasingly frustrated by Pakistani support for al-Qaeda and terrorism. The vote of the Senate Appropriations Committee was unanimous, 30-0.
The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
Pakistan receives about $800 million each year from Congress, a number not reported by the AP. The cash is taken from people who earned it, known as U.S. taxpayers. Claims that the phony puffed-chest posturing by the deceitful lying snakes in Congress was just a show for the lapdog Associated Press and other "news" organizations could not be confirmed at press time.
It should be noted that the Committee's recommendations do not cut the funding, as the AP's headline misleadingly suggests. The recommendation MAY be voted on by Congress, sometime this summer, there's apparently no rush. Until then, and maybe after then, the cash continues to flow. The AP story, which gave percentages but not total numbers, failed to mention that the proposed "slash" (their word) to the aid is a huge 4% of the total cash giveaway, less than sales tax in most states.
