"I worked in military intel from 1992 through 1995. Bill Clinton cut our budgets and manpower heavily every year, and gave those resources to HUD and other "touchy feely" agencies. Real intel capabilities walked out the door, some of which could have helped to thwart this attack."
"One of my Senators, Jim Inhofe, was quite blunt in stating that our intelligence capabilities and defenses were substantially down from ten years ago due to lack of funding and the cut backs in the military. Though he didn't name names, the implications is obvious."
