Skip to comments.Report: Obama Spent $770 Million in Taxpayer Funds to Rebuild and Renovate Mosques Overseas
Posted on 03/10/2014 1:46:52 PM PDT by make no mistake
A CBS news investigation found that the Obama State Department is sending millions of dollars to save mosques overseas outraging taxpayer advocates and raising enormous questions about aid to potentially terror-supporting groups with U.S. foreign aid.

We rebuilt the monastery at Monte Cassino, but then we did blow it up. Isn’t there something in the First Amendment about this. Several churches were damaged at the WTC on 9/11. Dis the feds pay to repair them? I know the Saudis didn’t. Does CBS just report this without comment or explanation?
Meanwhile Christian churches are burned down with the people in them, they are hunted, put to death, imprisoned and enslaved.
And they do not get so much as honorable mention from obama or the democrats.
How is it that I am literally sickened by the actions of my own government that seeks to profane the holy.
Not surprising at all. What the article fails to mention is all those Christian churches overseas he’s supporting. /sarc
Separation of church and state indeed. Separation of Obama from sanity is more like it.
Agreed. Every word.
$770,000,000.00 sure would buy a lot of rice&beans, flour and chicken for all the poor starving people in America that we hear about.
and the muslim world is laughing again.
But then again. What did you expect from our muslim CIC who is doing everything possible to diminish America while empowering Islam?
Did we blow up any mosques in Cyprus?
I believe this video is from 2011.
Here’s more on the program:
This better not be a true story!
Damnit! Damnit! This is so disgusting! Think of all the Charter Schools worth operating this money could be supporting. It may take someone like Ted Cruz to use this in order to educate the masses. He wouldn’t even need to editorialize very much. Just provide the facts. They can call the statement of face racist if they want to. That card is see through and dog eared by now anyway. It is no longer the guranteed Trump Card to stop all debate. If Rubio wants to be taken seriously again, he should start with this sort of material. Use it to gain friends and influence enemies.
The Marxist Muslim and Keynsian Kenyan strikes again while McConnell, McCain and Boehner fiddle.
What part of the liberals church and state disengagement not apply here?
*please don't blather about national security and in our best interests because the State is about as believable as Napoleon’s claims of uniting Europe, peacefully.
What about the Constitutional wall between State and Religion?
Anyone expect a complaint by the American Criminal Lawyers Union? Neither do I.

He’s a Muslim, Jim. “By their fruits shall ye know them.”
Gotta have a nice place in which to plan the Muslim conquest of the world, dontchaknow.
Last year, State installed a "Meditation Room" at its Washington headquarters.
In that same building, Hijab-wearing women and long-bearded men (not many yet, but a few), can be seen strolling the halls wearing TS-SCI badges.
Why did the press ignore the firebombing of Sarah Palin’s church?
The real news is that CBS discovered this
One more reason for Maine to get the hell out of this degenerate, corrupt, gØvt.
Obastard would say that the separation of church and state doesn’t apply outside the borders of the US, which is where they are spending the money.
That would have fixed some bridges over here.
Why you ask?
fighting Islamic extremism by building relationships with Islamic leaders....//sarcasm BIG TIME
And the GOP isn’t screaming at the top of their lungs??????
The government won’t go unpunished.
The GOP-e is complicit.
The Tea Party faction in the GOP is a bit too quiet on this matter, to be sure. Perhaps many of them are just panderers?
I agree he’s a Muslim - how else could he lie to and destroy the country that elected without a smidgen of conscience? The deceit is breathtaking.

Hey - my basement needs to be finished? Will bambi send me enough money to buy 2 x 4s?
All that goodwill will pay off big time in the future.
$770 million won’t even buy two Solyndra’s in the emperor’s estimation.
This should be a crime
I just saw this posted today and see no reference to 2011.
I thought the structure of my opening sentence would have precluded a question such as yours. Apparently I need to keep working on my sentence structure. Sorry.
I ran across these verses last week, and was reminded by your post.
I had written “WOW” in the margin by verse 6 sometime in the past. And I said WOW, again last week. Verse 8 is good, too.
Seeing it is a righteous thing with God to recompense tribulation to them that trouble you;
And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,
In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:
Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;
When he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed ) in that day.
We kept hearing from the main street media what a great secretary of state she was but nobody could say what she
accomplished except for traveling. Now we know/s
and just what is the justification for this program? Is this one of Hilary’s snafu’s or Obama’s?
“The GOP-e is complicit.’
The GOP controlled House is responsible for every appropriation of funds. Anything that has been funded since January 2011 has been approved by the GOP House members.
The Constitution gives the House control of appropriations. The fact they choose not to exercise their power, for fear of Obama and Harry Reid, does not relieve them from accountability.
That chirping noise you hear...crickets.
And yet again, Congress does nothing to stop him. Are they too all muzzies?
Didn’t know that at the time. May(?) 2011, perhaps a tenth of that amount could have been spent on the “Mission” in Lybia??? You know, improve security and stuff. . .
I can’t vouch for fact check dot org, but here is their take
Seems like we should be able to get a list of USAID spending to see what is really going on.
