    SERIOUSLY? 7 YEARS LATER? lol

    on 9/11 Obama would have attacked the GOP and then put the white flag up on the remains of the WTC... scary to even think of Obama being our President on 9/11 with the brain thrust of Biden and Jarret surrounding "the 5 pound workout king"

    that would have been great for the American people at that time of loss
    Yeah, prosecuting the terrorists would have stopped Bush from ignoring 40+ CIA warnings from the CIA/PDB's *shaking head*

They agreed with the rationale for it and many of them voted for it. They own it as much as anyone. As for Bush's other intiatives, they are still in effect and supported by the current President including the Patriot Act and other counterterrism policies.
    Sorry, Clinton WASN'T the decider AND 60% of Dems voted against Bush's war of choice in Congress!

Those "tax cuts to the super rich" must not have been so horrible if our current President kept them in place. Those "unpatriotic" Debt Ceiling raises must not have been so horrible if our current President wanted them also.
    Rush is that you?

    Right now the relatives and fellow tribesmen of those people are looking for some payback.

    Think about it.
    Iraq has about the same population as California, 100,000+ deaths and right wingers can't put in perspective what would happen after Bush invaded on false premises *shaking head*

Lightweight body armor is specific to the threat they are designed for. Threats changed, and tons of vendors were involved in building it. Quality control also plays a big part, and was affected by the fact that armor systems were being built 24/7 and that the designed had to change based on changed in enemy tactics that made it very difficult to keep up. You can't rev up R&D one day have have production armor the next, and that's what happened.

    So your statement taken into the correct context is total bull****, and unsubstantiated.
    CLINTON CUTS?

    Cheney was Secretary of Defense from 1988 to 1992, he cut the army troop levels by a whopping 25% and cut the military budget annually as much as Congress is doing this year:

    “Over Cheney’s four years as secretary of defense, encompassing budgets for fiscal years 1990-93, DoD’s total obligational authority in current dollars declined from $291.3 billion to $269.9 billion. Except for FY 1991, when the TOA budget increased by 1.7 percent, the Cheney budgets showed negative real growth: -2.9 percent in 1990, -9.8 percent in 1992, and -8.1 percent in 1993. During this same period total military personnel declined by 19.4 percent, from 2.202 million in FY 1989 to 1.776 million in FY 1993. The Army took the largest cut, from 770,000 to 572,000–25.8 percent of its strength.”

    Those cuts came because of the end of the Cold War with the Soviet Union. When wars wind up, Mr. Cheney, military budgets wind down, as you yourself demonstrated.
