Senator John Ensign

Sen. John Ensign wants to make sure no U.S. aid to Iraq ends up in the hands of the likes of France, Germany or Russia.

The Senate approved an amendment by Ensign Wednesday that would prevent the use of any American taxpayers dollars sent to Iraq from being used to repay debt to nations that failed to support the U.S.

"We cannot allow American taxpayer dollars that are supposed to be rebuilding the infrastructure of Iraq to be sent to countries that supported the Hussein regime and failed to act when the United States was liberating the Iraqi people," Ensign said.
