Senator Susan Collins of Maine alerts the enemy to US Troop movements.
Advertiser Democrat of Norway, Maine

GREATER OXFORD HILLS - Oxford Hills families of 133d Engineer Guardsmen are thrilled and appalled.
The are thrilled, of course, because their soldiers are coming home. But many families here are disturbed and upset that Senator Susan Collins announced Monday on national television specifically which days the unit would be in the air, even specifying that the first group would fly "Wednesday afternoon."
A spokesperson from the senator's press office, however, said that Senator Collins had been given the information by U. S. military officials and had permission to make the details public. This has done little to calm the uneasiness that the disclosure caused.
One Oxford Hills father who has a child in the unit even indicated that some of the 133d troops weren't happy about the public announcement, either. "There is a little crankiness about that [Collins' telling the flight dates] from the troops over there. There is such a thing as operational security. So I have heard a little flack [from our soldiers] about it," the dad said.
On Tuesday, another Oxford Hills man who, also, has a child serving with the 133d was angry about the broadcasting of the travel plans. "Maybe she [Collins] should just ask for the insurgents e-mail addresses and sent them out an itinerary. Our [child] is still sitting in Mosul and it was a little unnerving to think that Collins is giving out dates and times. It's bad enough getting out of there as it is.

Once again Collins has shown herself to be a self centered little brat willing to baslme anyone and everyone.
I believe Susan Collins was a staffer for Bill Cohen.
She speaks as if she's had a stroke.
Having women in leadership roles is a weak link in the chain of our society, unless they're leading women only.
I have as much respect for Susan Collins as I do for Maxine Waters.
Shes not! Shes a RINO like McCain!
Oh good grief, her dumb move had nothing to do with her gender.
Maybe she just made a mistake.. I can't believe she would endenger the soldiers on purpose.
Odoso types......"Having women in leadership roles is a weak link in the chain of our society, unless they're leading women only. "
Wow, that's some impressive treachery. I bet Kerry and Kennedy are envious.
Huh? Surely you jest.
God help us.
Along with getting up to 58 Republican Senators in 2006 -- we need to also get rid of the RINOs and idiots.
"On Tuesday, another Oxford Hills man who, also, has a child serving with the 133d ..."
I hate when they refer to our servicemembers as 'child' or 'children'.
You have much more respect for Collins than anyone at Christian-news-in-maine.com!
Surely I do not
So them for what they were, and know a little of their history.
BTW if you put a conical hat on Oly Snow, you actually see that she is a witch.
