Of Course That Pakistan Aid Got Diverted
Two Pakistani Army generals confess a painful truth about the Bush administration’s years of giving billions to Pakistan:
Between 2002 and 2008, while al-Qaida regrouped, only $500 million of the $6.6 billion in American aid actually made it to the Pakistani military, two army generals tell The Associated Press.
Why, who could have forseen that? After all, the Bush administration only paid its ally Pervez Musharraf in untraceable cash transfers. Yes, that’s right: billions in cash. Why would anyone think that money wouldn’t reach its directed targets?
