U.S. Bans Military Aid to Almost 50 Countries
2 hours, 29 minutes ago

By Jonathan Wright

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States on Tuesday declared almost 50
countries ineligible for military aid, including Colombia and six
nations seeking NATO (news - web sites) membership, because they back
the International Criminal Court and have not exempted Americans from
possible prosecution.

State Department spokesman Richard Boucher said 35 of those countries
had been receiving U.S. military aid this year and, in some cases, all
the money was already spent. But the ban could still be in effect when a
new fiscal year starts in October.
