Obama Slashed Bombing Budget

Under President Bush the domestic bombing prevention received $20 MILLION dollars a year to support their work. When Obama took office, he immediately cut that budget to $11 MILLION dollars. Keep in mind that we (the US government) spend $1 TRILLION dollars dedicated for IED (Improvised Explosive Device) prevention overseas.

One can conclude that Obama cares little about your security. Slashing the domestic bomb prevention budget by just short of 50% isn't a trivial thing. It's clear that Obama didn't think that domestic bombings were very important.

Sources indicate that these cuts made it much more difficult to investigate the Boston bombings. This is just another example of Obama's failed policies. He does not have the strategic view to know how to protect Americans - or he just doesn't care! His Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Director Janet Napolitano did NOT answer any questions about why the agency cut this funding for preventing improvised explosive devices.

Maybe he and FLOTUS needed the money to pay for one of their many world class vacations!
