Skip to comments.Obama administration has SLASHED budget for domestic bombing prevention by 45 per cent,
Posted on 04/16/2013 5:03:00 PM PDT by Nachum
Barack Obama's administration has cut the budget nearly in half for preventing domestic bombings, MailOnline can reveal.
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.
He told MailOnline that the Obama-era DHS is, on the whole, about as well-positioned as it was during the Bush administration to handle the aftermath of the April 15 bombings in Boston, 'but the Obama administration has continued to cut the budget for offices such as the Office for Bombing Prevention from $20 million started under Bush, to $11 million today.'

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Yes; but the Obamaphone program is UNTOUCHED (that’s the IMPORTANT SPENDING, with this assclown)
Thank goodness he cut the money spent on bomb prevention instead of cutting the money spent to find out how frogs and snails have sex.
Thank goodness he has his priorities straight.
Well, lets send less money to the Palistinians and a few less jets to Egypt and we could probably increase it.
Once again, we have to go to Great Britain for news about the U.S.
