That secretive, controlling George W...

...wait a minute...a penny saved

Under President George W. Bush, the Department of Homeland Security had $20 million allocated for preventing the use of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) by terrorists working inside the United States. The current White House has cut that funding down to $11 million.

That assessment comes from Robert Liscouski, a former Homeland Security Assistant Secretary for Infrastructure Protection, in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15 that killed three Americans and injured at least 173 others.
Of course, that's not what the Whitehouse tells the citizenry.
On February 26 the Obama White House issued a lengthy National Policy for Countering Improvised Explosive Devices. Obama wrote in an introduction to that document that 'we have no greater responsibility than providing for the safety and security for [sic] our citizens, allies, and partners ... The use of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) threatens these interests by killing, injuring, and intimidating citizens and political leaders around the world.'

'We must not become complacent,' he wrote.
Unbelievable.

It was a different security environment after 9/11. We don't have 100,000 NATO troops in Germany any more either. Times change and spending money gets reprioritized.

These attacks would have never happened under the presidency of George W. Bush. President Bush actually cared about the security of his nation and he never said “sorry’ for anything.

"' Times change and spending money gets reprioritized', says president nonny."
