Of the 30 largest recipients of U.S. aid worldwide, only three voted for than half the time with the U.S. on overall votes in the U.N. General Assembly.

Development aid distribution should be fair and impartial, not tied to voting in line with American interests. There shouldn't be strings attached to foreign aid. If we feel we are spending too much in this area generally, then we should review and triage our aid to those countries that need it most.

No strings attached is a tricky proposition. Don't we want to give aid to countries with humanitarian and civil rights beliefs similar to our own? And if so, they are at least somewhat more likely to vote with us. No?
