California Senator Alan Cranston has called on Secretary of State Henry Kissinger to justify "in detail" why more than two-thirds of American foreign and military aid is going to what Cranston terms "dictatorships and authoritarian regimes." Cranston obtained a list of where all US aid is going to during the current fiscal year - and found that nearly 70 percent of the $7 .5 billion in aid is going to governments that "range from one man or one-party rule to out-and-out pĆ³lice states." Cranston has further discovered that since 1945, the US Government has provided at least $8 1 billion to these authoritarian governments. Cranston reports that 1 8 of the governments which receive American aid are classified by our own State Department as "Military Dictatorships."
