coming out of the "favor bank": hundreds of billions of dollars' worth of weapons, fighter jets, biochemical agents

"Under federal law, foreign governments seeking State Department clearance to buy American-made arms are barred from making campaign contributions -- a prohibition aimed at preventing foreign interests from using cash to influence national security policy.
