The U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday approved a $48.8 billion spending bill to bolster U.S. foreign policy and aid efforts, including to allies like Pakistan and Afghanistan.

The legislation includes $2.7 billion in foreign aid for Afghanistan and $1.5 billion for Pakistan as they fight Taliban militants. It also provides $2.2 billion for Israel, another close U.S. ally, for the fiscal year 2010 that starts October 1.

The legislation is $3 billion less than the $52 billion reque

I don't get it

When U.S. gave money to Pakistan before it went directly towards funding arms against India and terroists.

That is funding TERRORISM!

Now they want to give them more money?

If you go to a bank, take a loan, then the bank/authorities find out you used that money to fund terroism, will that bank give you money again? And again and again and again?

How is this NOT funding terroism?
