      This is big news!!!

      Washington (CNN) -- The United States is holding back $800 million in aid to Pakistan, President Barack Obama's chief of staff said Sunday.

      Appearing on ABC’s “This Week,” White House Chief of Staff William Daley confirmed a report in the New York Times that the aid was being withheld.

      While Pakistan has “been an important ally in the fight on terrorism,” Daley said, “now they’ve taken some steps that have given us reason to pause on some of the aid which we‘re giving to the military, and we‘re trying to work through that.”

        • But isn’t it ironic...that they made a point to vocalize this to the people?  “oh we are holding back aide to Pakistan....because we are concern with some of their actions“...my question is why have they not done this with other countries?  Not saying I’m not glad...but I just find it very ironic that now we are getting into campaigning...they voice this....am I missing something?

        • OH I totally agree Annie!  I’m sure it does have something to do with the debt ceiling.  WE can stop sending a lot of countries money...cut out a lot of other crap here in the states...before we cut out medicare and social security.....it’s definitely a political strategy...
