Since 2002, the United States has given Pakistan over $20.7 billion in combined military, economic and humanitarian aid, according to the Congressional Research Service (CRS).
The CRS chart, Direct Overt U.S. Aid and Military Reimbursements to Pakistan, FY2002-FY2012, originally released by the State Department, shows total U.S. donations of $14.2 billion to Pakistan for security-related programs and $6.5 billion for economic and humanitarian programs.
Largest security-related U.S. donations to Pakistan included $8.9 billion in coalition support funds from the Department of Defense budget, $2.2 billion for foreign military financing and $1.9 billion to the Pakistan Counterinsurgency Fund.
In addition, the U.S. donated $4.8 billion from 2002 to 2011 to help support and develop Pakistan's economy, $650 million for Pakistan earthquake and flood recovery and $413 million for food.
Since learning that 9-11 mastermind Osama bin Laden had been living within yards of a Pakistani military installation for at least the last five years, some members of Congress, like Rep. Kay Granger (R-Texas), have started to question the wisdom of further U.S. taxpayer support for Pakistan.
