While I am on the theme–where would America be if we did not supply the world with deadly armaments? If anyone believes that Bernie Sanders or Donald Trump will be allowed to even threaten the power of the hidden state and all of its beneficiaries in the MIC, think harder.
As the the Evil Bitch in the pantsuit continues to falter in the tumult of the people’s revolt the desperation of the power elites will become even more intense. It is a long time until November and it is not winter I fear is coming but a dangerous and hot summer.
The Obama administration has provided Cairo with $6.5 billion in military aid since 2011 but can’t account for all of it, according to a new government report.
The United States provided $6.5 billion in military assistance to Cairo between 2011 and 2015 with the understanding that it would be closely monitored and it would serve American interests. Instead, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) asserts that the Obama administration has often failed to meet those requirements due to resistance from their Egyptian counterparts, lack of guidance from Washington and insufficient staffing at the US Embassy in Cairo.
The State Department and the Defense Department (DOD) have established programs “to provide reasonable assurance that military equipment transferred or exported to foreign governments is used for its legitimate intended purposes and does not come into the possession of individuals or groups who pose a threat to the United States or its allies,” the GAO said in its May 12 report. “However, gaps in the implementation of these end-use monitoring programs — in part due to limited cooperation from the Egyptian government — hampers DOD’s and State’s ability to provide such assurances.”
But, By Golly! Let’s basically give them another $150 million in arms.
