Skip to comments.U.S. to Help Vietnam 'Peoples Committee' to Modernize Water InfoCom System (News Brief)
Posted on 12/10/2012 5:41:33 PM PST by Steve Peacock
A Vietnamese water company has asked the Obama Administration for help in assessing its information and communications technology (ICT) modernization plan, and a White House agency has agreed to provide a $600,000 grant for that purpose. The U.S. Trade & Development Agency (USTDA) will fund the endeavor, which entails footing the bill for an ICT contractor to fly to Vietnam to provide "technical assistance" to the Saigon Water Corporation, or SAWACO. SAWACO is described as "a government-owned enterprise operating under the HCMC (Ho Chi Minh City) Peoples' Committee," according to a contracting notice that U.S. Trade & Aid Monitor located through routine database research.

Foreign aid for everyone while we all go broke
I read it as a $600,000 payback to a loyal Obama supporter who is in the I.T. business. The grant pays for an expert to go to Vietnam to “consult.”
I think you should ask your great friends China and Russia that assisted you in killing 58,000 of America’s finest. Perhaps we can return your former citizen gang members, welfare grabbers and otherwise useless vermin to assist you in these efforts.
