As Predicted Last Year: Hoyer Claiming Escalation Must Be Funded for "Troops on the Ground"

By davidswanson - Posted on 23 June 2010

This is what happens when you let an escalation happen before funding it. The congress critters claim the funding is for "troops on the ground" as if defunding them would mean they had to go without dinner. That the escalation has gone ahead unfunded might be grounds for impeachment, but it is not an excuse to insist on funding it. If Congress doesn't fund it, the troops must be brought back home.

At 5:21 pm on Sept 11th, 2001, World Trade Center 7 dropped into its own footprint at free-fall speed:

This 47 story tall building was not hit by an airplane and housed the CIA, Secret Service, as well as thousands of files from ongoing SEC investigations of Wall Street's dirtiest dealings.

The 9/11 Commission failed to even give this monumental collapse mention in its "all inclusive" explanation of the events of that day.

How gullible are the American people? Ask yourself.
