Obama spending $20 million on Pakistani 'Sesame Street'

Barack Obama won't sign paychecks for soldiers, but he will sign off on a $20 million plan to spend U.S. tax dollars so Pakistanis can watch 'Sesame Street.'

"In a $20m (£12m) remake of the classic American children's programme, the setting for the show has moved from the streets of New York to a lively village in Pakistan...The financing for the series comes from USAid, the economic assistance arm of the US government...," the Guardian reported Thursday.

"Under Barack Obama, US civilian assistance to Pakistan has tripled to $1.5bn a year but the money does not seem to have made much obvious impact," the Guardian reports.
