If you are curious about why the large majority of our senators and congressmen signed on to a, AIPAC sponsered, letter to the Illustrious secretary of state Hillary Clinton, you have no further to look than AIPAC’s web site where they have blatantly published a copy of the letter for the perusal of the sheeple.
Assistant Secretary for Political – Military Affairs, Andrew Shapiro, discusses the Obama Administration’s approach to U.S.-Israel security cooperation , including ongoing efforts to strengthen theU.S.-Israel security relationship , at the Brookings Institution’s Saban Center for Middle East Policy in Washington, DC July 16, 2010.
The Obama Administration is proud to carry on the legacy of robust U.S. security assistance for Israel. Indeed, we are carrying this legacy to new heights at a time when Israel needs our support to address the multifaceted threats it faces.
“For Fiscal Year 2010, the Administration requested $2.775 billion in security assistance funding specifically for Israel, the largest such request in U.S. history. Congress fully funded our request for FY 2010, and we have requested even more – $3.0 billion – for FY 2011. These requests fulfill the Administration’s commitment to implementing the 2007 memorandum of understanding with Israel to provide $30 billion in security assistance over 10 years.”
