Obama Demands
$60 Billion In Savings
From Military Fighting Two Wars

by Michael Goldfarb - July 28, 2009 - The Weekly Standard

This is the same Barack Obama who asked the entire federal government to come up with $100 million in savings over the next year and couldn't deliver on deadline. Yet the military, actively engaged in two hot wars and fighting a global war on terror, or counterinsurgency, or contingency operation, or whatever the euphemism of the day is, will be asked to cut six hundred times as much in order to "pay for new priorities to be set by the Defense secretary, a top Pentagon official said Tuesday"...

Meanwhile, Obama has announced plans to significantly gut our National Guard forces on the premise that these institutions are "too conservative" and cannot be counted on to police the American people.
