    Another 500 million in taxpayer's money tossed down the drain.Money that will supposedly be used for water,energy ,agriculture and health in Pakistan's economy.That money could have been used in America for helping out the unemployed here.For Hillary it's just another photo -opt.

    RE: Lois,
    I never was a fan of Hillary however I agree with you on this point, She does work hard. We would have been better off if she won the election and I am a Conservative!
