I read the article, which notes btw that one third of the money is being

More specifically, however, 1) you had to go clear the way to Africa to find

domestically oriented. We have always sent money overseas to buy influence,
keep allies, that sort of thing.

My point, to keep it to the conversation rather than being distracted, was
domestically oriented, toward the citizenry of this country.
