The Pentagon says it’s taken final steps to cancel $300 million in planned aid to Pakistan.
The move earlier this summer reflects the Trump administration’s dissatisfaction with Pakistan’s commitment to assisting the U.S. strategy for pressuring the Taliban, whose leaders use Pakistan as a sanctuary.
It comes at a delicate moment in the U.S.-Pakistani relationship, following the election victory of Imran Khan, the new Pakistani prime minister. His foreign minister, Shah Mehmood Qureshi, said Sunday in Islamabad that he’s expecting a visit Wednesday by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
“We will hear him and let him know the aspiration of the nation,” Qureshi said.
Pentagon officials say a request was submitted to Congress this summer for authorization to use the $300 million for other purposes. The request has not yet been approved. The move was first reported by Reuters.
A Pentagon spokesman, Army Lt. Col. Kone Faulkner, said Sunday the request to Congress was made in June or July and was “due to a lack of Pakistani decisive actions in support of” the U.S. strategy for bringing the Afghan conflict to a political solution.
The Pentagon announced in January that it was suspending aid, known as coalition support funds, to Pakistan, and subsequently the Congress cancelled $500 million in such aid. But the Pentagon did not take final steps on the $300 million until this summer.
Here’s Pakistan’s contributions to Islamic terrorism:
In 2001, after a narrow escape from getting his ass blown to smithereens at Tora Bora, Osama Bin Laden hightailed it across the border into Pakistan where he stayed until the SEALs got his goat-smelling ass.
Everyone knew he was in Pakistan, we just didn’t know where. But the Paki government did, and it out and out refused to let anyone come after him.
In 2003, Khalid Sheik Mohammad, Bin Laden’s principal architect for planning and carrying out the 9/11 attacks as well as hundreds of other terrorist acts, was captured in Rawalpindi Pakistan.
Pakistan is not an ally; it has never been cooperative in the war against Islamic terrorists. Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari admitted as much.
The Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI) has Taliban moles on its payroll, and cells run back across the Afghan border after re-grouping, thanks to the Pakistan regime. Any resurgence of the Taliban in Afghanistan can be directly attributed to terrorist groups operating carte blanche in Pakistan; abetted by a large portion of the Pakistani government, Army, and ISI.
Not only is Pakistan complicit in protecting the terrorists, it’s one of the Taliban’s closest partners.
The Department of State on Friday announced that it would stop funding the U.N. Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), a United Nations body that gives out aid to Palestinian refugees.
The announcement comes just a day after the Washington Post reported that the administration was considering funding cuts over its concerns on the number of refugees recognized by the organization and how the organization spends its funds.
“The Administration has carefully reviewed the issue and determined that the United States will not make additional contributions to UNRWA,” Heather Nauert, spokesperson at the department, said in a statement.
……”The U.S. will no longer commit further funding to this irredeemably flawed operation,” she said. ” We are very mindful of and deeply concerned regarding the impact upon innocent Palestinians, especially school children, of the failure of UNRWA and key members of the regional and international donor community to reform and reset the UNRWA way of doing business.
In January, 2017, Trump also stopped Obama’s payment to the PLO terrorists.
How fucking depraved do you have to be to think that arming America’s enemies is a good thing?
At least for now, we have a leader in the White House who will not allow this shit to happen.
