The farther you read in thee article, the worse it gets. For example:

He [Vice Admitral Robert J. Papp, Jr., the nominee] also calls for cuts to the Coast Guard's largest homeland security operation, which patrols critical infrastructure and other sensitive security structures on or near waterways. And he would decrease the number of specialized units stationed in key coastal areas where an attack could be devastating.

Obama has already proposed closing five of the 12 specialized units in 2011.

The CG doesn't just do its work on the coast lines; it also has vital seurity responsibilities on the inland waterways. I live in the Knoxville, TN area near the first of the navigable reservoirs on the the Tennessee River, Fort Loudon Lake. At Fort Loudon Dam, which is about 10 miles downstream from me, the lake is more than 70 feet deep; the lock in the dam takes boats a total vertical distance of 70 feet from Fort Loudon Lake to Watts Bar Lake. All a terrorist would need to do is buy a cheap, used 40' boat, stuff it full of explosives, and detonate it in the lock, thereby sending a giant flood down stream to Chattanooga and destroying a gereat deal of the upstream commetrce. The same could be done with any of the other 6 or 7 Tennessee River dams.

The Illegal Alien communist/secret Mudslime and this idiot stooge he's just nominated seem to want nothing more than TO HAVE THAT HAPPEN.

I think it’s far worse than just leaving us unprotected; I think he wants another 9/11 to hit us as long as he can slither out from under the accountabilithy. He’s a purely evil America and American hating traitor who’s doing his absolute, level best to destroy this country and the

Back after 9/11, the dim’s media was all upset that clinton wasn’t in charge at the time. I thought that was just weird. Why would that matter? But here we are with the dims in charge and the guy who plays president on tv is openly inviting another attack on our country. He is intentionally weakening this country, flashing weakness to our enemies and poking a finger in the eyes of our allies. Where this gets spooky is, considering obama’s attitudes toward our country, just what would he and his admin do if we are attacked again. He has openly shown where his loyalties are and it isn’t with us.
