But let's look at that "foreign aid" a little closer. What are the first 5 countries at the top of that list of aid?
Answer for 1998 (all other years are pretty much the same):
President Bush declares that foreign aid is crucial for the nation's security and has increased it in the current budget by about $750,000,000 though a good percentage of that (close to 50%) has traditionally been for military use. It seems to me that foreign aid really is the aid we recieve from foreigners.
