The mainstream media remains silent on this but the International News http://www.thenews.com.pk/top_story_detail.asp?Id=22164 has now picked up the story — and then there is Obamas $108 billion IMF bailout scheme http://michellemalkin.com/2009/05/13/obamas-100-billion-imf-bailout-scheme/ in addition to the Supplemental.
Gee, what are the chances tax money from American Christians will be used to fix churches overseas?
Apparently it is a fact that US taxpayer funds were used to assist in restoring/refurbishing mosques in foreign countries. BUT the funding did not start with the Obama administration - funds were first authorized and provided during the Bush administration. To truly be a free republic we must insist on facts and not slant or skew the content of news stories to fit our political ideology.
