Real Security Act of 2006


Recommended Posts

http://democrats.senate.gov/agenda/real_security/act_2006/ <~ it's a long post, so I just posted the link instead.


To the Democrats; I like the one on "Equip Our Intelligence Community to Fight Against Terrorists

". http://democrats.senate.gov/agenda/real_se...ntelligence.cfm


(Real Security? STOP PLAYING POLITICS WITH SECURITY. That would be REAL SECURITY; From a Human Being.)




Oh!!! and the Diplomatic Course, Why do you think Rice is at State? for fun?????


The Diplomatic Course has been corrected.


"Change Course/Change the Secretary of Defense. Finally, the Real Security Act includes the Sense of the Senate that in order to succeed in Iraq, the President must change course. A good indication of that change and a step in the right direction to give our troops and the Iraqi people the best chance for success is for the President to replace the current Secretary of Defense." <~~~~~~~ This is just politics, with NO basis in fact

at ALL.



"Hold the Bush Administration Accountable For Contractor Waste, Fraud and Abuse in Iraq. During World War II, the Truman Commission investigated waste, fraud and abuse in military contracts. Its efforts saved the American taxpayers an estimated $15 billion. Now, while American taxpayers continue to foot the bill for the war in Iraq, contracting companies continue to profit. Since 2003, there have been many examples of the misuse of American taxpayer dollars in Iraqi contracting. A key example of Iraqi contract abuses is Halliburton - with Pentagon auditors questioning $1.4 billion of the billings that Halliburton submitted for its Iraqi work. Unfortunately, Republicans have rejected every effort by Democrats to investigate these abuses. The Real Security Act establishes a modern-day Truman Commission to investigate waste, fraud and abuse in U.S. contracts in Iraq." <~~~~~~~~ more politics.



I CAN keep on going but unfortunately you guys, and gals "democrats" are just playing politics.


Look!! to the democrats; for gods sakes, PRETTY PLEASE KEEP THE POLITICS OUT OF IT,



Ya know, if you democrats DID NOT PLAY politics with this nations' long term security, as well as the Minority groups?


I would have never gone republican.

Well your party deserves a failing grade in its policy. Five years after 9/11, the Bush Administration and Republicans in Congress have not done enough to keep our country safe. Read what the 9/11 Commission had to say.



2004: Bush And GOP Leaders Promised Implementation Of 9/11 Commission Recommendations. "'...President Bush is committing his administration to relying on the recommendations of the Sept. 11 commission in waging the war on terrorism... "The 9/11 commission's recommendations will help guide our efforts," said the president. "We will carefully examine all the commission's ideas on how we can improve our ongoing efforts to protect America and to prevent another attack." ...Late Friday, House Speaker Dennis Hastert, R-Ill., who had expressed doubt that lawmakers would have time to consider a sweeping intelligence overhaul this year, said he and Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Texas, would also direct House committees to hold hearings in August and make recommendations for legislation in September." [msnbc.com, 7/24/04]



2006: Bush And Republican Congress Given Failing Grades By 9/11 Commission For Refusal To Implement Recommendations. "The federal government received failing and mediocre grades yesterday from the former Sept. 11 commission, whose members said in a final report that the Bush administration and Congress have balked at enacting numerous reforms that could save American lives and prevent another terrorist attack on U.S. soil. The 10-member bipartisan panel -- whose book-length report about the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks became a surprise bestseller -- issued a "report card" that included 5 F's, 12 D's and two 'incompletes' in categories including airline passenger screening and improving first responders' communication system." [Washington Post, 12/6/05]
