Proposed Republican cuts to foreign assistance endanger national security, according to a foreign policy umbrella that includes AIPAC among its members. "These cuts are of particular concern as the International Affairs Budget provides extensive counter-terrorism and counter-Insurgency assistance to countries of high-priority national security, such as Afghanistan, Iraq, and Pakistan," said the statement Wednesday from the U.S. Global Leadership Coalition. "The proposed cut would gut our embassies and consulates, and hurt our commitment to key allies in the Middle East."
