My opinion of President Obama rose when he ordered the successful raid to eliminate the mass murderer Osama bin Laden. Now if our government would only take the next reasonable step and also eliminate the $3.2 billion in aid that we send to Pakistan, I would really be impressed!
How ludicrous for Pakistan to claim that they didn't know bin Laden had been sheltered in their country for years! They are obviously trying to play both ends against the middle, trying to appease the Taliban while taking money from America, and why not? It has evidently been working very well for them!
Why not tell them "Sorry, you harbored our No. 1 public enemy; no more money for you from the chumps in the United States." Does anyone have sense enough to do that? I doubt it.
