Obama seeks to double US foreign aid

Despite America's deep economic crisis, the Obama administration's 2010 budget unrolls a program to double total foreign aid, which includes that for Israel and the Palestinians, according to a budget overview released Thursday.

this is one of the few promises that he is keeping, but one which most of us wish he wouldn't. here's a story about when he made the promise from 2007:

Obama: Double foreign aid, expand military


Democrat Barack Obama said today he wants to double foreign aid to $50 billion by 2012, and focus on helping "the world's weakest states" improve health, education and business opportunities. In return, he would ask those countries to build democratic institutions, honest police forces and a free press.

The proposals are part of the Illinois senator's mid-day foreign policy speech to the Chicago Council on Global Affairs. He also wants to increase the size of the military, strengthen NATO, negotiate a global ban on production of highly enriched uranium and plutonium and take other steps to reduce the nuclear threat.

Obama also summarized his plan to wind down the Iraq war. He would start phasing out U.S. troops May 1 -- a week from today -- with the goal of completing the withdrawal by March 31, 2008.
