"The United States has proposed a USD 20 million plan to boost Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' personal security force and upgrade the main cargo crossing between Gaza and Israel, American officials said Thursday.
The plan is being worked out by Lt. Gen. Keith Dayton, the US security coordinator in the West Bank and Gaza, and was discussed during Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's meeting with Abbas on Wednesday, the officials said.
The plan is part of a larger US effort to bolster Abbas, a political moderate who is in a power struggle with the Islamic Hamas group.
The US plan would provide funding and training to Abbas' presidential guard, which is considered the best-trained and most reliable of the security services."
YOU NEED TO PROTECT YOUR PUPPETS:
Why not give a contract to an American "security firm," such as Blackwater or Custer-Battle to provide private security and bodyguards to protect Abbas, in the same manner another dear US puppet, Hamid Karzai, has been protected for sometime. This way you at least recycle US taxpayers' money to an American company and spread the wealth to a private firm instead of a corrupt "Authority."
