Obama Wants to Speed Up the Restoration of UNESCO Funding


Remember when the U.S. halted funding to UNESCO because the U.N. recognized Palestinian statehood? Well, Obama wants to put it back on the fast track payment plan without anything in return. He is a die-hard ideologue with no common sense.

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration this week formally announced its intention to ask Congress to waive a ban on funding UNESCO over its recognition of Palestinian statehood.

“The Department of State intends to work with Congress to seek legislation that would provide authority to waive restrictions on paying the US assessed contributions to UNESCO,” said a footnote in the budget that the White House submitted to Congress this month.
