By the way, $1.2B of that is classified as "economic aid". Why are we giving economic aid (especially that much) to one of the wealthier countries on the planet?

more republican rhetoric and propaganda fail.-


Obama to the rescue! - sending your tax dollars to his Arab terrorist jihad brothers...
i sure wish we could shut down the majority of ALL foreign aid until we get our shit together financially. i guess thats the price we pay being the most powerful nation on earth.
