Uzbek Aid Suspended

Critics of the Bush administration frequently cite Uzbekistan as an example of how the U.S. is not truly following a policy of unwavering support for democracy. Thus, it seems fair to note that the State Department has decided to suspend some aid to that country in response to its poor human rights record. Cynics, however, might note that the aid suspended is for economic development and non-weapons-related military spending, so it doesn't sound like it will have any lasting impact - just soldiers waiting a little longer for their pay or something.
