Obama Must Restore New York's Terror Fighting Funds [ Obama cut NY's Funds !! ]
Fox News ^ | 5-3-10 | By Annemarie McAvoy - FOXNews.com

Saturday night's attempted car bombing in Times Square shows that New York continues to be in the cross-hairs of the terrorists. New York City has always been the terrorist's prime target and every possible effort has to go into fighting them so that these attacks are not successful. This includes putting appropriate funding into terror-fighting efforts so that law enforcement has the tools and the manpower it needs to protect the city. Instead, the Obama administration has been cutting funding for anti-terror programs.

As the risk of a successful terrorist attack in New York City has increased, federal funding from the Obama administration designed to thwart such attacks has declined. This is an amazing fact, given the out-of-control spending in Washington these days. While funding has gone down there have been numerous attempted terrorist acts as well as additional attacks that discovered while they were still in the planning stages. For example, there is the Zazi case, in which the Bull's-eye was directly on New York City, just as it was in Saturday night’s attempted car bombing in Times Square. President Obama needs to recognize that there are terrorists out there who are at war with us, and he has to fund the necessary programs to protect against their attacks.

Subways, trains and buses have been hit by terrorists in attacks around the world. We know that Zazi, who recently pled guilty, was targeting the New York City subway system. Nonetheless, funding for NYC’s Transit Security Grant program was reduced by over 25%, or almost $45 million dollars. The overall funding went from $153.3 million down to $110.6 million.

The money was needed to "lawyer up" and protect

NYPD has 30,000 officers. I think they can do their own anti-terrorism task force.

The community-organizer-in-chief must set priorities. We don’t have the money to defend NYC while fully funding ACORN and SEIU, and paying for lawyers for every terrorist and pirate that our military captures. Defending Americans is not Obama’s priority, and I’m not surprised to hear another confirmation of that fact.

I have no doubt funds were cut
but I’d like to see the fiscal 08 budget ( Bush’s last since he did not sign the fiscal 09 budget, odumbo did that in march 09) and the fiscal 09 budget.

If Obama sent to congress a budget with cuts in NYC funding I think even MSM will jump on that
But if the bidget he sent didn’t contain cuts and Piglosi made the cuts then she needs to be hung out

I agree, let NYC protect itself. Napolitano is useless anyway.

"Obama cut NY's Funds !"

Of course he did. That arugula and caviar, to say nothing of those NYC date nights, aren't going to pay for themselves.

Lets see, this is the regime that assured that they would NOT use nukes even if we are struck AND they are the regime that cut funding against terrorism.
