    White House ignores Congress, sends all $1.5 billion in aid to Egypt in one transfer

    WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama, despite opposition in Congress, has relayed all of U.S. aid to Egypt for 2012.

    In an unusual move, the White House acknowledged that the administration
    relayed all $1,5 billion in U.S. civilian and military aid to Egypt for this

    White House spokesman Jay Carney.

    The move came less than two weeks after Obama exercised a waiver of a law that would halt all assistance to Egypt until it honored human rights, democratic reforms and pledges for security cooperation.

    “Egypt has been an important ally of the United States and has played a significant role in the region,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said.

    In a briefing on April 5, Carney confirmed that the administration relayed $1.3 billion in U.S. military aid and $200 million in civilian assistance in one transfer. The spokesman did not explain why the White House ignored calls by Congress to stagger the aid in at least three payments.

    The briefing followed the first formal meetings between the White House
    and leaders of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, which now dominates the new
    parliament. Carney said the United States would work with the Brotherhood to
    encourage democracy in Egypt after the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak in

    Uh huh, and our wonderful peaceful friend Israel has recieved $115 billion in US taxpayer dollars since WWII while itself being the most belligerent state in the Middle East. $3.1 billion in foreign military financing, another $15 million for refugee resettlement, and $99.8 million for joint US-Israeli missile defense development. Meanwhile the IDF continues to use Palestinian children as human shields, continues to possess nuclear weapons while refusing to sign international treaties and subscribing to nuclear doctrine known as the "Samson Option"... not to mention HR 4133 which places US troops in harms way to defend an "ally" that actually despises us.

    Course then again the Taliban and bin Laden were also once US allies so I'm sure sooner or later my ignorant fellow Americans will wake up and realize the mistake the made... probably in time to say a final prayer before Israel causes an end of the world catastrophe.

    I wonder how much of that 1.5 billion will make it back to Obama's campaign fund.

    "eggactly" Jung. IF the dust ever settles we will find that nobammy has pulled off the biggest scam the world has ever known. Thousands of billions have just "poofed" into thin air--no one knows where it is, where it went, or who dispensed it---and it is still going on.

    Quit reading propaganda. The IDF doesn't use palestinian children as shields, palestinians do that.

    How is HR 4133 Israel's fault?

    If you would take the time to read some history, it might make sense to you that Israel is a bit wary of us as an ally. Seriously, would you trust the U.S. right now?

    How do you figure Israel is the most belligerent state in the M.E.? That's a pretty big claim if you actually think about the nations that comprise the M.E.

    It never ceases to amaze me that while most folks here are intelligent enough to see through the crap our own gov't spoon feeds the sheeple, they still can't overcome the lifelong brainwashing that conditioned them to unconditionally believe Israel is innocent.

    Truth about Israel is labeled as propaganda much the same as anything said against the Obama administration is labeled as racism.
