White House Quietly Releases $105 Million in Military Aid to Lebanon

HeadlineDec 03, 2019

The White House has quietly released $105 million in military aid to Lebanon after months of unexplained delays. Top lawmakers have been asking the White House to explain why the military aid was not delivered earlier, despite having been approved by Congress and supported by the Pentagon. Some lawmakers have compared the delay to the withholding of military aid to Ukraine, which is at the center of the impeachment inquiry, although there are no allegations President Trump sought favors from Lebanon.
