#1 Could this US soldiers death along the Pak border be why Trumped tweeted at 7am Monday morning that aid to Pakistan should be suspended?

#5 Oldest son told me that when he was in Naganhar with the 173rd one of the problems was GPS was iffy and prone to errors along the border, probably due to ore deposits. They would use three GPS units and patrol based on 'best two out of three' positioning.
