Heh . . . just heard this on the radio about an hour ago, in the car.

My wife (who TOLERATES my ATS side) turned to look at me in all seriousness, and said "So he is the fall guy . . . and now the story will disappear."

I did a double take . . . I may be converting her lol

ok so add in a team of vastly overpaid crew and I guess photographers... and I am wondering where that third 100k was spent? I know its just a estimate on how much it cost, but it came from the AF did it not?

"Vastly overpaid crew?" You're joking, right?

For those expressing concerns over government wasting taxpayers dollars, I present the following:


Spent & Approved War-Spending - About $800 billion of US taxpayers' funds spent or approved for spending through mid-2009. In April 2009, President Obama announced that he will seek an additional $76 billion for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

U.S. Monthly Spending in Iraq - $12 billion in 2008

U.S. Spending per Second - $5,000 in 2008 (per Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on May 5, 2008)

Cost of deploying one U.S. soldier for one year in Iraq - $390,000 (Congressional Research Service)

Lost & Unaccounted for in Iraq - $9 billion of US taxpayers' money and $549.7 milion in spare parts shipped in 2004 to US contractors. Also, per ABC News, 190,000 guns, including 110,000 AK-47 rifles.


Group cites daily cost of Iraq War as $720 million

Daiy cost of Iraq War

It's obvious from this that Obama doesn't call all the shots in the military, but that commands come from some behind-the-scenes source. It's scary when our own president can be taken out of the loop.
