Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN) -- The United States gave $860,000 to the families of people in Afghanistan killed or wounded in a shooting rampage that is being blamed on U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Robert Bales, two Afghan officials said Sunday.

The money includes $50,000 for each of 16 people who were killed, as well as $10,000 for each of six who was injured, the provincial council members said.

A U.S. official confirmed Sunday that a payment had been made on Saturday.

"I can't comment on the figure, but I can say that it reflects the devastating nature of the incident," said the official, who asked not to be named because of the sensitivity of the situation.

Other than terror weapons, what can money be used for in a hellhole like Afghanistan anyway? On the other hand maybe that is the plan...

” How much did the victims and family’s get for Ft Hood? “

Anyone know the answer to this?

I DO know that $50,000.00 over there, is like $250,000.00

here, so the “victims families” are very well off now.

So the U.S. pays $860,000 go the families of the victims slain by SSgt. Beals. I'm certain they will go right out and upgrade their personal armament — maybe getting that new AKSU assault rifle, RPG-7V launcher, or ZSU-23-2 heavy machine gun they've always wanted. There should be enough left over to buy some really sexy sheep, goats, or young male sex slaves. Thank Allah for this windfall.

What have the victims of Major Hassan (Ft. Hood Massacre shooter) gotten from the U.S. government but a lot of red tape, lies, inaction, and Bravo Sierra?

Elections have meanings, America. This is what happens when you elect a Kenyan-born, Muslim-schooled, Marxist-indoctrinated community organizer to POTUS.
