Schumer’s High-Horse Hypocrisy
And now that a new book has been released that claims Al Qaeda was set to use cyanide gas on New York subway commuters, he has lashed out once again.
(ABC News) A reported plot by al-Qaida terrorists to kill thousands of New Yorkers by spreading cyanide gas in the subway underscores the folly of a Homeland Security Department cutback of funds for major cities, a Democratic lawmaker said Sunday.
"This is just more evidence that what Homeland Security did to us was terribly misguided and just wrong," Sen. Charles Schumer said. "It shows that New York is the prime target, and shows the importance of prior intelligence and of manpower."
However, Chuck Schumer himself voted to cut terrorism funding by $95 million including a significant amount of money that would have gone to his state. Woops! (News Max)According to Newsday, the Democratic duo [Schumer and Clinton] backed a $95 million cut last December in funding from the Centers for Disease Control for bioterrorism programs around the nation. Of that amount, approximately $3 million would have gone directly to New York City.
Sorry Chucky…gotcha again
