Okay, so billions of your taxpayer dollars are being flushed overseas every single year. While you can’t find a job and while we’re all screaming at each other over our inability to pay our debts, your federal government is shooting your money in places all over this world…doing neat stuff, like fixing up mosques in Egypt when my plumbing goes, the State Department isn’t rushing in to help me, so why are they doing that for Egypt?
But wait a minute, I got distracted here….that’s not what this post is about. This is another example of your money being flushed away. The US was scheduled to pump $3 billion of your money to Pakistan until we realized (again) that Pakistan was actively working against us. (again) So we’re punishing them. We’re only going to send $2 billion of your hard earned money to them. Just think about that because it’s just like you pulling out your check book and writing a check for say, $1,000 made out to Pakistan. How do you like that? How does that feel? You good with that? You’re suffering, you cannot make your mortgage payment, your bank account is overdrawn, but you’ve still got to write that check. Oh, and after to write that check, your “friend” turns around and takes your spouse out on a very fancy date….here’s the story from Reuters:
Pakistan gave China access to the previously unknown U.S. “stealth” helicopter that crashed during the commando raid that killed Osama bin Laden in May despite explicit requests from the CIA not to, the Financial Times reported on Sunday.
The disclosure, if confirmed, is likely to further shake the U.S.-Pakistan relationship, which has been improving slightly after hitting its lowest point in decades following the killing of bin Laden.
During the raid, one of two modified Blackhawk helicopters, believed to employ unknown stealth capability, malfunctioned and crashed, forcing the commandos to abandon it.
