Information about foriegn aid that, to my knowledge, does not get reported is: Where does the money go, exactly? -That is, say we give Egypt several billion (the amount of money usually is reported, or at least available), for ‘security’, where, exactly does that money go and are there strings attached? Which strings? -Would we give Egypt several billion and then they can spend it on whatever weapons they choose? Doesn’t seem too likely.-My guess is that some weapons manufacturer, who coincidently makes large ‘campaign contributions’ to key legislators, gets a contract with the US Govt. to deliver specific weapons to Egypt. That way, Egypt gets the arms, the weapons mfr gets tons of money, the CEO gets tons of money, the congressmen get tons of money, and Fox “news” viewers get to be outraged.-I’ll be happy to be enlightened if I’m off base.
