Summary:

Jordan's loyalty to the U.S. in the war on terror is being compensated in the form of military assistance -- $2.7 billion in the three years after Sept. 11, 2001, compared to $1 billion in the three years before the attacks, making the country the fourth-largest recipient of U.S military aid, after Israel, Egypt and Pakistan, the Center for Public Integrity reported. Those numbers come from a U.S. military aid database created by the CPI's International Consortium of Investigative Journalists and based on information gathered through FOIA from the departments of Defense, Justice and State.
