"House panel unveiled a bill yesterday that would block U.S. aid to Pakistan, Egypt, Lebanon and the Palestinian Authority unless the Obama administration reassures Congress that they are cooperating in the worldwide fight against terrorism. The legislation, a direct challenge to President Barack Obama and his foreign-policy authority, comes as the House is looking at significant cuts in the annual budget for the State Department and foreign assistance."
