    WASHINGTON: President Barack Obama has signed a massive annual defence policy bill which grants $1 billion to Pakistan for the expenses made by its army in support of the US military operations in war-torn Afghanistan.

    The National Defence Authorization Act for the fiscal year 2015, signed by Obama on Friday, sets overall defence spending at $578 billion which has provision for release of Coalition Support Fund amounting to $1 billion to Pakistan.

    CSF is not a military aid but a reimbursement to Pakistan for the expenses made by the its army in support of the US military operations in Afghanistan.

    Though there are conditions attached for the disbursement of the amount to Pakistan, with regard to it taking action against terrorist organisations and in particular the Haqqani network, but as usual the defence secretary can waive off these certification under national interest, as has consistently been the case for the past several years.

    US and Pakistan are now holding talks on extending CSF even after the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan.

    The NDAA asks the defence secretary to submit a report to the Congress on US-Pak bilateral security co-operation within the first 90 days of the passage of this bill and every six months thereafter till December 2017.

    According to NDAA 2015, out of the $1 billion, $300 million would not be released to Pakistan unless the defence secretary certifies to the congressional defence committees that Pakistan has undertaken military operations in the restive North Waziristan that have contributed to significantly disrupting the safe haven and freedom of movement of the Haqqani network.

    The defence secretary also needs to certify that steps were taken to ensure that North Waziristan does not become a safe haven for the Haqqani network.

    In the report, the Congress also seeks a description and assessment of the effectiveness of efforts by Pakistan, unilaterally or jointly with the United States, to disrupt operations and eliminate safe havens of al-Qaida, Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan and other extremist groups such as the Haqqani Network and the Quetta Shura Taliban.

    It also seeks assessment of efforts by Pakistan to counter the threat of improvised explosive devices and the networks involved in the acquisition, production, and delivery of such devices and their precursors and components.

    It is a Faustian clinch.

    The Americans for a few years of glory / hegemony have sold their soul to the messenger of Satan ( Mephistopheles)

    This amount will be directed by Pakis towards their pet hate object , India.

    We in India will debate till the "holy cows come home" and it will be business as usual.

    Let the Americans feel our disappointment, PM should announce that we don't like this chicanery before Obama arrives as RD Guest of honour.

    By the way Dr Faustus by Christopher Marlowe is a great read ( it is a play written by Shakespeare's contemporary who many believe wrote better than the Bard , but his life was cut short in a bar room brawl) )

    Well...mark my word..US is going to continue to help Paki as long as the stakes are raised to a point that it becomes very unprofitable venture to US. Paki can be used not only against India but also against China and Russia....Paki knows well its nuisance value. India needs to make its military extremely strong that US realize that using Paki is useless and non productive. Arm yourself with every type of weapons..bio-chemi-cyber-nuke -conventional and so on as World has turned into a jungle and only rule left is that might is right because of US policies in last 10 years . No room for humanity, values and peace...now..in this world ..military strenghth has become the only value because our superpower has gone crazy.

    Which part of @Neo 's post you did not understand? It is clearly mentioned as
    It means, Pakistan is getting this amount against the expenses occurred during Lodging and Fooding of Osama Bin Laiden and Family, Construction of Safe House and further strengthening the Afghan Taliban to make an effective WOT. Reimbursement against Amreekan Drone Attack in Pak Soil is pending due to confusions as Amreeka is telling that more civilians got killed than Terrorists, but Pakistan is claiming that those who Killed in drone attacks were terrorists.

    Bheek part is not included at all on a good gesture towards Amreeka (though PA is manipulating the expenses by overcharging). Begging strategy has been shifted towards China and Soudi. :taunt1:

    It is your duty to go after terrorists in your country. Why do you need to get paid for it?

    US is narrow-minded and does not see terrorism against India with same lens. India must have its own policy on how to deal with state policy of -----stan to use LeT,other terrorist org to attack India.

    Since terrorist org are directly/indirectly supported by Porky army, they should be considered as Porky army executing operations against Indian state(irrespective of where it happens like J&K or even if they are not directly involved in those attacks). In such situation a fitting reply should be given by Indian forces along IB and LOC directly inflicting damage on Porky army infrastructure.

    I am not sure if our Indian govt has such an policy against these paid terrorist used by porky army or any policy on what Indian response should be. We should have some effective policy of our own rather than expecting US/UN to force Porky army to stop terrorist activities towards India(which hasn't worked anyway in last 30 years). Until Porky army wags its nuclear tail, US is likely to sign an paycheck for them under the name of war against terror even if it is known by most US congress man that -----es are playing double game.

    As Christine fair as pointed out, -----stan is an greedy state and it uses its terrorist org under the nuclear umbrella to get these paychecks from sam. It views terrorist org as national assets and the only way to attack India and there will be no change in this perception in near future.
