United States Unable to Monitor Millions of Dollars They Sent to Pakistan


A new report reveals problems about tracking $750 million dollars given to Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA), along the Afghanistan border, where extremists such as al Qaeda are active.

The U.S. pledged $7.5 billion last year in assistance to Pakistan, for the next five years.

Congress blames an uncooperative Pakistani government, as well as difficulties with security and in tracking the money.

  Here´s an idea  
How about we stop sending our money overseas? All of it. It is not our job or duty to financially support other governments and their military. We have enough problems covering the costs of our own government right now. We should not be the ones to police the world when we can´t even police ourselves properly.

yeah that would make sense but the problem is the government can´t seem to comprehend common sense... it´s just not there with them.

stop all aid to them! pull back all money that can be identified.

  Agreed DT.  
I started to say:

We have no business in the houses of others, particularly when we can´t keep our house in order.

But then I thought:

Even if our house is in order, we still have no business in the houses of others.

No. Definitely not. See prior rantings.

Also, I find it atrocious Israel gets several billion a year from us when they are a productive first world nation.

@harishsn - They would most likely be Chinese AKs and PKs considering their high production rate, versatility and cheap cost. But I would say a majority of the cash would be pocketed by corrupt officials.

@BB - Still having trouble trying to disagree with you...I give up. Non-interventionist policies are what this country was founded on, although such logic is about 120 years outdated.

  No Surprise  
Didn´t the Pentagon lose 2 or 3 TRILLION dollars a while back?

  Not outdated at all.  
In fact, a hundred and twenty years from now, keeping out of other people´s business will still be a good idea. ;)

Tough to stay out of people´s business because they will not stay out of your business.

Goes like this: If you stop interfering with them, they will not stop interfering with you.

The Taliban is not an Afghani invention to begin with. The Taliban is a bunch of guys that came out of some sh1tholes in the middle-east, and decided to interfere with another country, mainly using western money to oppose the Soviet. Just like they dream of interfering with your country, and every now and then, they do.

I understand. Which is why our military was designed as a retaliatory force.

When attacked, we should retaliate swiftly and without regard for rebuilding that which we destroy. They attacked us, let them rebuild their country and we´ll rebuild ours.

If we did that a few more times, our attackers would think long and hard before bothering us again.
