    GOP Lawmakers Push for Cancellation of U.S. Funds to Qaddafi Foundations

    GOP Lawmakers Push for Cancellation of U.S. Funds to Qaddafi Foundations - Political News - FOXNews.com

    GOP lawmakers are calling on the Obama administration to cancel $400,000 in economic aid to foundations run by Libyan leader Muammar al-Qaddafi following his rambling diatribe at the United Nations this week and the hero's welcome he gave to the Lockerbie bomber last month.

    The State Department notified lawmakers earlier this month of its intent to disburse $2.5 million in economic aid to Libya, including $400,000 for Qaddafi's foundations. Of the $400,000 half will go to a foundation run by the leader's son, Saif, and the other half to one run by his daughter, Aisha.

    Florida Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtien, the top Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee sent a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton requesting the cancellation of the entire $2.5 million of economic aid.

    How and the Hell does this happen what is the White House thinking this needs to be cut and the money given back to us the American tax payers. Hell I say cut alomost allof are so-called Aid to most of the Country we send money to.
