Obama Slashed Funding For Domestic Bombing Prevention By 45%…
Quote:Barack Obama’s administration has cut the budget nearly in half for preventing domestic bombings, MailOnline can reveal.

Under President George W. Bush, the Department of Homeland Security had $20 million allocated for preventing the use of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) by terrorists working inside the United States. The current White House has cut that funding down to $11 million.

That assessment comes from Robert Liscouski, a former Homeland Security Assistant Secretary for Infrastructure Protection, in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15 that killed three Americans and injured at least 173 others.

He told MailOnline that the Obama-era DHS is, on the whole, about as well-positioned as it was during the Bush administration to handle the aftermath of the April 15 bombings in Boston, ‘but the Obama administration has continued to cut the budget for offices such as the Office for Bombing Prevention from $20 million started under Bush, to $11 million today.
It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"

There is really nothing any government can do to prevent someone from successfully detonating a home made explosive. Only idiots get caught, only idiots leave the 'package' in an obvious place where it will be seen as suspicious. Feel free to demand the government waste more of "your" "money" to make you feel safe. Just keep in mind that its just a feeling, and feelings don't shield you from explosives, bullets, nuclear weapons, tidal waves, earthquakes or anything else that may fuck up your day.
