Dismissing concerns over possible links between Libyan rebels and al Qaeda, the Obama administration has notified Congress it is providing $25 million in nonlethal aid to the rebels effort to drive Col. Moammar Gadhafis regime from power.
The presidents proposed actions would provide urgently needed nonlethal assistance to support efforts to protect civilians and civilian-populated areas under threat of attack in Libya, said Joseph E. Macmanus, acting assistant secretary of state for legislative affairs, in an April 15 letter. A copy of the letter, sent to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, was obtained by The Washington Times.

They are not short on cash. But, why spend yours when you have a uncle in the White House and a niece that is Secretary of State?
If by “he” you mean obama, he is evil but, he is far from stupid. He hates America and all it stands for. He was put in office to do one thing, destroy the United States.
Here’s an idea for obama - you can raise the 25 mil by selling arms to Iran. Whatever is left over maybe you can free some terrorists somewhere. It’s like I am in an alternate reality under an anti-Reagan.
Can you imagine Obama’s response if this was 1941 and the Japanese just bombed Pearl Harbor.
“Uhhhhh....we are officially going to send 25 million in “non-lethal” aid to the Philippines and uhhhhhh we will be initiating a uhhhhh military kenetic action in the south pacific, but only after we put it to a vote at the League of Nations first.”
Where on earth did Obama come up with this money?
Where is congress? We are creating another fiscal sink hole.
My new proposal:
F**k ‘em all. All of them. Drill for our own damn oil (or get it from Canada, etc), and tell them to go screw a camel somewhere.
Barry is a Clear & Present Danger to America!
When things like this go on, the entitlement crowd can rightly say “Hey, you’re blowing 25 mil over this so don’t tell me I can’t have mine”.
Regardless of whether they deserve taxpayer money or not, at least they’re Americans. This, like giving money to the Pali’s, is just madness.
Where’s the GOP outrage?
Why is the CIA involved in this? I am tired of the world being turned upside down.
As the re-election campaign managers study today’s surge in oil price to $111/barrel, and draw conclusions from it, you can rest assured that alleged civilian deaths in Libya will suddenly reach a point beyond Obama’s tolerance and direct military intervention will be ordered.
Yea well we shall agree to disagree.
We could save money if we just brought the "rebels" to this country and gave them some nice shoulder-launched missles.
Wrecking the Future.
That could have feed 9,000 children for one full year!
The Democrats just killed 9,000 US Children.
It's from the Social Security checks you are never going to see. Now all of you racist Freepers, pay your 7.5% and shutup. :-(
To Hell with that BS, uhbummer should pay that from his personal account, get out of my pocket you crack head POTUS..
Yes he is, and unfortunately while not anywahere near rising to the Total muszy renegade duhbummer is the friggin pubs are not even fighting. The dems choose a playing field and they try to play by their rules, this ship is sinkin fast and we need folks who throw out the old game, stop thinking the American people can bail us out of this crap they are shoving down our throats and make the federal gangsta pay, cut it to nothing, remove all its rights to raise or borrow money and run the country from the states, make it so states must balance their budgets and can not loan other states money, eliminate all income and corporate taxes and have a fair tax on goods bought. Then we start playing on our field again, not the minefield they have rigged already to play on..We need our freedom back now...
