Bush waives law to give millions to Pakistan's anti-terror fight


afp.google.com

In a memo to the secretary of state dated Monday, Bush used his authority to exempt Pakistan from a law that restricts funding countries where the legitimate head of state was deposed by a military coup, as in Pakistan.

The waiver, which Bush has approved every year since 2003, opens the way for the United States to provide about 300 million dollars this year to key "war on terror" ally Pakistan to boost its counter-terrorism operations.

A law is only a law if Bush likes it.

I guess by looking at the related ATS thread, you can see why Bush pushed this through.

Bush needs Pakistan for the Iran invasion, he cannot lose this partnership and $300,000,000 is alot of persuasion. Maybe this is the final proof that Iran is going to happen.
