White House to Cut Anti-Terror Funds


www.truthout.org

Homeland Security grants may be cut by more than half, documents show.

Washington - The Bush administration intends to slash counterterrorism funding for police, firefighters and rescue departments across the country by more than half next year, according to budget documents obtained by The Associated Press.

The Homeland Security Department has given $23 billion to states and local communities to fight terrorism since the Sept. 11 attacks, but the administration is not convinced that the money has been well spent and thinks the nation's highest-risk cities have largely satisfied their security needs.

The department wanted to provide $3.2 billion to help states and cities protect against terrorist attacks in 2009, but the White House said it would ask Congress for less than half - $1.4 billion, according to a Nov. 26 document.

This appears to be nothing more than a last ditch attempt at covering up the huge hole that Bush has made in the US economy.

Has anyone in the USA really noticed a difference in the service provided by the emergency services and the security of the country?

Has it been money previously well spent?

Is the reduction in what is allowed to be spent going to affect you or do you feel it will have a bad long term effect once Bush is out of office?

I think the biggest question is why has Bush decided to do this?

Running scared perhaps?
