Obama’s track record has been fraught with doom each time he steps in usually too late to help is Muslim Brothers.
Come on we are only talking $32 million more taxpayer dollars added to the deficit what’s the problem?
This time he is attempting to help those that are going against the jihadists so I seriously wish him well.
Once again we get to help or French friends who are in over their head, vote against us at the U.N. but are helping them in a fight they have not the will to finish.
Pass the brie, a bottle of some champagne and some white flags will you?
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.
Au revoir !
SEVARE, Mali (AP) — The Obama administration is seeking an additional $32 million to train African troops to fight Islamic extremists in Mali.
State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland told reporters Friday the request had been made to Congress.
The United States is not providing any direct aid to the Malian government because the democratically elected president was overthrown in a coup last year.
However, it has been providing aid to the French-led mission, transporting French troops and equipment to Mali.
France has some 2,400 forces in the West African nation but says it wants African nations to take the lead in fighting the extremists who rule northern Mali.
The French-led operation began on Jan. 11 after the militants surged southward from their strongholds and took the town of Konna, later recaptured by government forces.
