Anonymous Obama Senior Official Commits $30 billion to Israel

The open and transparent Obama administration anonymously committed $30 billion in military aid to Israel. Haaretz reported:

U.S. President Barack Obama will not cut the billions of dollars in military aid promised to Israel, a senior U.S. administration official said Wednesday. The $30 billion in aid promised to Israel over the next decade will not be harmed by the world financial crisis, the official told Israel Radio. He spoke on condition of anonymity.

Was that Rahm Emanuel, David Axelrod, or another senior official? When did the executive department approve expenditures? Only Congress has the power of the purse and they answer to the people. Many are tired of overspending. Others worry about violence and pumping billions in weapons into high conflict zones. What can happen politically in ten years? Maybe, change.
