U.S. Suspends Pakistan Military Aid

The U.S. is suspending up to $800 million in military aid to Pakistan after the country expelled American military trainers. The move also serves to pressure Pakistan’s army to fight militants more seriously. The suspended aid includes $300 million that would have reimbursed Pakistan for deployments along the Afghan border; the rest would have come in the form of training assistance and expensive military equipment. "When it comes to our military aid, we are not prepared to continue providing that at the pace we are providing it unless and until we see certain steps taken," Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said.
