Dem Sen. Lautenberg: Suspend Aid to Pakistan Until It Answers Questions

Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are concerned about all the money the United States gives to Pakistan — $3 billion for 2012 in President Barack Obama’s February budget plan. Especially because there’s strong circumstantial evidence that some Pakistani leaders must have assisted Osama bin Laden in hiding.

Frank Lautenberg, Pakistan, aidSen. Frank Lautenberg, D-N.J., contends that the United States should suspend aid to Pakistan until it answers some questions, Politico reports. “Before we send another dime, we need to know whether Pakistan truly stands with us in the fight against terrorism,” he said.

“The ability of Osama bin Laden to live in a compound so close to Pakistan’s capital is astounding. And we need to understand who knew his location, when they knew it, and whether Pakistani officials were helping to protect him.”
