First question: How much is a DC-3 compared to a Chevy Volt, price-wise? Including charging station.

Second question: How would a DC-3 have prevented the embassy from being overrun?

Second question: How would a DC-3 have prevented the embassy from being overrun?


Third question: What about the CIA station next door that Congressional Republicans revealed in their hearing yesterday - was the 7 man "QRF" there why State felt the consulate was safe?
 
2012-10-11 12:13:49 PM  
Nothing in the article about Consulate security being cut.
 
2012-10-11 12:20:00 PM  
You mean the funding cuts that Republicans voted for?

Fourth question: Why did the Moonie Times not reference their own article talking about how since 2010 the GOP had been responsible for the budget cuts that reduced the embassy security?

God damn, they really are running with this bullshiat comparison. Re-bloody-dickulous

Also, considering how expensive gas is in Europe equipping the embassy with volts has a chance of being a long-term cost saver.

This may come as a shock, but the State Department budget and the embassy security budget are separate.

Questions 8 through 12

"Who is Spain?"

"Why is Hitler?"

"When is right?"

"Where was that stooped and mealy-colored old man I used to call Poppa when the merry-go-round broke down?"

"How was trump at Munich?"

and then there is this.

Government rules for spending are quite stringent and particular. These two items are entirely separate kettles of fish and it is nearly impossible that the funding for one could have gone to the other.
/they really are damn strict

When did Romney and his GOP ever let facts stand in the way of some good, old fashioned outrage?

Wow. The same dipshiats who actually believe this stuff are actually getting closer to retaking the White House.

I had a friend with bad depression who felt like she just needed to completely crash and hit rock bottom before she could finally get better. Maybe that's what need to happen to America too. Just put the GOP in control of everything for about a decade and then see how great you think their ideas are.

Of course, there probably wouldn't be anything to recover by then.

They would have parked it in front of the Consulate, and when the bad guys showed up they would all have stopped to say "What in the name of Allah is this doing here?"
