"The Pakistan military declared Sunday that it doesn't need U.S. aid, as the White House confirmed that United States is withholding about $800 million in aid to Pakistan's armed forces. ... The cutback seemed to be a direct response to recent moves by Pakistan, which expelled U.S. military trainers from the country, limited the ability of U.S. diplomats and other officials to get visas and restricted CIA operations allowed on its territory. There are also questions about U.S. civilian aid to Pakistan, about $1.5 billion a year." (07/10/11)
