#1 How many times has something like this happened, and we keep paying Pakistan anyway?

I mean, the body count is a lot larger than the imaginary Russian bounties...

#2  The Trump administration has cut by half its budgetary request for a fund that the US uses to compensate coalition partners for military and logistical support, which could mean Pakistan, the principal beneficiary of the allocation, will get next to nothing from it.
The fiscal year 2020 budget request for Coalition Support Fund (CSF) of $450 million reflects a $450 million (50%) decrease from the FY 2019 enacted level of $900 mn, the US department of defence said in a summary of its budgetary requests released Tuesday.
The reason for the reduction, it said, was “the continuing suspension of US security assistance to Pakistan based on the President’s January 4, 2018, guidance”.
