    I know there is already a thread on the payments from the American people to the massacre victims, But I thought this point needed a thread of its own. Obama gave them this money? "From Obama"? Obama personally paid those people out of his pocket? I don’t really have a problem with the payments, but it should say this money came from the American people not Obama “Obama money" more "Obama money"

    I have no doubt that is what was implied when this money was given...

    I have no doubt that even if it wasn't you'd think that is was.

    From the Reuter's article, it was Afghan officials that told the recipients that the money came from Obama. He was probably instrumental in getting them the money so it's logical that Afgans would say it came from him.

    You may be right, but Obama likes to keep his name on things, he even has his modified Obama symbol on the paid for by the stimulus construction projects, plus the man said "they were told" it came from Obama, it doesn’t seem like they came up with that on their own

    WGN news mentioned these payment on their TV news tonight. It was stated that the money was from He Who Shall Not Be Named.

    It's very common to credit the head of state when we should be referring to the nation. We do it all the time.
