On Thursday, March 21, Sen. Rand Paul introduced Amendment 379, to S.Con.Res.8, the Budget Resolution, which would cut off all foreign aid to the government of Pakistan until Shakil Afridi, a key informant in the capture and killing of Osama bin Laden, is released from prison.

"Pakistan's actions are unacceptable and not suitable for any country wishing to receive a single dollar from U.S. taxpayers - especially considering their country is one of the largest recipients. Foreign aid to Pakistan must be prohibited until Dr. Afridi is released from prison, and his safety is guaranteed. " Sen. Rand Paul said.
