We Are Still Giving Pakistan Billions, Just Not This Week

The Post reports 
The Obama administration has delayed payment of hundreds of millions of dollars in promised military aid and reimbursement to Pakistan to reflect its displeasure with that country's lagging security cooperation, according to U.S. and Pakistani officials." Post Story. 
The results have been mixed. Pakistan has given the CIA access to bin Laden's residential compound and has allowed interviews with individuals at the compound who were taken into custody. After first refusing new visas for CIA personnel, Pakistan has approved dozens of them.
But an experiment in shared intelligence failed last month when information given to the Pakistanis about the location of several Taliban and al-Qaeda weapons factories in the tribal areas resulted in an apparent tip-off to militants, who evacuated the sites before the arrival of Pakistani military units.

We are giving these guys NVG? Who are we kidding?
