:: [Prev] more broken promises [Next]
Jeanne at Body & Soul takes on the dubious pronouncements in Bush's new Afghan aid package:
I wouldn't blink at that if this administration didn't make a habit of shifting money around between aid programs in tricky ways. Promising money for AIDS relief in Africa, while simultaneously cutting food aid to the continent. Getting part of the money needed to rebuild Iraq by cutting our contribution to the World Food Program. The new money always makes headlines. The cuts go unnoticed.
