Congressman Introduces Bill That Would Cut Foreign Aid to Countries That “Undermine US Foreign Policy Objectives”
May 11, 2013   By:    Extraordinary Rendition, H.R. 1922   94 Comments   //   1803 Views

Yesterday, Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) introduced H.R. 1922, known as the Foreign Assistance Under Limitation and Transparency Act (FAULT) Act, which would limit foreign assistance to five countries that “undermine U.S. foreign policy objectives.” The five countries mentioned in the bill are Iran, North Korea, Syria, Egypt, and Pakistan.

From the press release from Gosar’s office:

“Sending billions of taxpayer dollars overseas to hostile countries is unconscionable. Yet, only in Washington, D.C. does it make sense to pay other governments to undermine our foreign policy objectives.”

Rep. Gosar continued, “When countries like Iran, North Korea, Syria, Egypt, and Pakistan act like enemies rather than friends toward the United States and our allies, the time to cut them off from U.S. taxpayer dollars is now.”

What is interesting is that all of the countries referenced by the FAULT Act, except North Korea, were all mentioned in a study outlining which countries have been complicit in the CIA’s extraordinary rendition program, which presumably benefited what some officials thought were the “U.S. foreign policy objectives.” Given that Obama has not ended extraordinary rendition (but has made some changes), perhaps some officials in the Obama administration still think a similar program serves some purpose. 

Iran was involved in the capture and transfer of people that were held in secret detention, and Egypt, Syria, and Pakistan were all involved in the torture and detention of people that were subject to the CIA’s extraordinary rendition program while also allowing the U.S. to use their airspace for that purpose.

While most of the countries outlined in Gosar’s FAULT Act countries do have unpleasant or fragile governments, history suggests American officials can find them useful in achieving particularly unpleasant foreign policy objectives.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

    I discovered more new things on this losing weight issue. A single issue is that good nutrition is very vital whenever dieting. A huge reduction in bad foods, sugary foodstuff, fried foods, sweet foods, red meat, and white colored flour products can be necessary. Keeping wastes harmful bacteria, and wastes may prevent objectives for losing fat. While particular drugs for the short term solve the issue, the horrible side effects are certainly not worth it, and they never offer more than a non permanent solution. It is just a known incontrovertible fact that 95% of celebrity diets fail. Many thanks sharing your ideas on this weblog.

    One thing I would really like to say is the fact before getting more laptop or computer memory, have a look at the machine into which it could be installed. In the event the machine is running Windows XP, for instance, the memory ceiling is 3.25GB. Using over this would basically constitute a new waste. Make sure that one’s mother board can handle your upgrade volume, as well. Thanks for your blog post.
