Video: $33 Billion for WHAT?

By davidswanson - Posted on 19 May 2010

I really wonder, however, if the extra $33bn doesn't pass, then will the troops sent based on the apparent expectation that the $33bn would pass be withdrawn from Afghanistan and returned to the US? Is there a way that the White House and military command could manage to keep these troops there without the $33bn being passed?

take it out of pentagon slush funds or sell arms to iran like reagan did but not without a big fight that might restore a bit of spine to congress
