As we all know the Taliban would not be what they are today without the aid, training, and monetary assistance of the U.S. Government. With the current flooding situation in Pakistan the Pakistani government is afraid that "militant groups will exploit the flood". This article is from teh Washington examiner newspaper. Also in the Examiner an article titled "White house vows more aid to flood ravaged Pakistan".

In my opinion this looks like a great way for TPTB to continue to fund the militant groups with the publics approval. Seems like a rather poor excuse for a shell game. I do not for one belive that the United States should be providing such large sums of money to this republic until such time as the Pakistani government is able to show where they need the money to go and how it will be spent.

This government is already known to be unstable at best and now with foreign aid pouring in these militant groups will have the money and time they need to regroup and come back stronger. Not to mention the article states that the militant groups will probably kidnap the orphans from the flooding and train them to be militant operatives as well.
