Cash came direct "From President Barack Obama"

Back on March 11th Army Staff Sergeant Robert Bales was accused of sneaking off base in Afghanistan and opening fire on Afghan families as they slept. I am sure you recall the story – 16 people killed and many were wounded. Understandably many Afghanistan citizens were upset and protested against the U.S. military in the area. Sunday Afghan officials reported that the U.S. paid $50,000 in compensation for each villager killed and $11,000 each for each person wounded. The families had previously received smaller compensation payments from Afghan officials - $2,000 for each death and $1,000 for each person wounded.

The families were told the money “came from President Barack Obama”

Another interesting side note which ironically is being left out of most U.S. based news bureaus is the fact that Sgt. Bales was taking the anti-malaria drug Mefloquine which has been linked to suicides and homicides in the military for over a decade. The UK Daily Caller reports that the drug has side effects including paranoia, hallucinations and psychotic behavior. Read the whole story and tell us what you think.


  1. How much did the afghans pay the families of the soldiers that they road side bombed? Did they pay more for the ones they decapitated? Did the victims of torture at their hands get anything?

    Our apologizing president’s anti-American actions are disgusting. Also the money paid is from taxpaying Americans Mr. President, not from you.

  2. These types of things make me mad. Why do we always use our military to help these countries and also pay for rebuilding the country when it is all over? Ask any of our wounded servicemen how much they got when they were sent home injured or ask the survivors of those killed how much these foreign countries sent them to care for their families.

    They got nothing

  3. The people that this happened to are not the nut cases that are fighting and killing our soldiers. Not that some of them may not resent us being there, but for the most part they are a poor people who measure their wealth by things other than money. Most of them won't understand or probably even recieve this money. I wonder how much money is sent to the widows of our soldiers or other people killed by extremist groups around the world? Well at least he has his priorities straight. He is considering giving 4.5 billion, thats correct, BILLION to a company directly linked to Harry Reid, to build a high speed train from California to Las Vegas. Sounds like a party!

  4. I can't hardly wait for this man to be out of the White House
