Me thinks the media should start asking questions of this President rather than just printing their talking points. From the AP through Yahoo! News, we have learned that the Bush administration tried to divert funds meant for explosive detection:
“WASHINGTON – While the British terror suspects were hatching their plot, the Bush administration was quietly seeking permission to divert $6 million that was supposed to be spent this year developing new homeland explosives detection technology.
Congressional leaders rejected the idea, the latest in a series of steps by the
Homeland Security Department that has left lawmakers and some of the department’s own experts questioning the commitment to create better anti-terror technologies.
Homeland Security’s research arm, called the Sciences & Technology Directorate, is a ‘rudderless ship without a clear way to get back on course,’ Republican and Democratic senators on the Appropriations Committee declared recently.”
For all their talk about “protecting” us, its sure to hard to believe a word they say anymore. You can read the rest of the article HERE but do so at your own risk, as your head may explode.
