US NSA Says Risk Of Pak Nukes In Terrorist’s Hands Reason For Cut In Military Aid


The United States recently cut $300 million in military aid to Pakistan and the Trump administration may have had substantial reasons to do so. According to National Security Advisor John Bolton, one of the major reasons was the risk that Pakistan’s nuclear weapons could fall into the hands of terrorists.
