    Default $5 Billion Mistake?

    Seems after 8 years and $5 Billion, the army doesn't like it's pixelated uniforms. Now according to righty logic, if Obama is directly responsible for Brian Terry's death, then Bush 43, the hero of prf righties, is responsible for this $5 billion fuck up, because it happened under his watch and direct supervision. But $5billion of poorly spent taxpayer money isn't the biggest problem:

    The specialist asked that his name be withheld because he wasn’t authorized to speak to the press.

    “As a cavalry scout, it is my job to stay hidden. Wearing a uniform that stands out this badly makes it hard to do our job effectively,” he said. “If we can see our own guys across a distance because of it, then so can our enemy.”

    Now if this camo did not hide US soldiers from the enemy, it almost assuredly led to the deaths of some US servicemen. Since Bush 43 was Presdient and Commander in Chief when the decission to adopt this uniform was made, and according to righty logic, Bush 43 should take the blame for all the servicemen who were killed because of the non effective camo.

    Will the righties call out Bush for this, will they ignore it, or will they blame it on Obama?

    Good find Ram!

    I had to do a little research. Here is an interesting bit of information:

    Surprise, surprise. After Gen. Moran's career of authorizing billions in military equipment purchases including the shitty Cammo in Rams article, he now works for an Israeli Company selling military equipment to uncle Sam ! No doubt as a high paid lobbiest ! Another example of MIC in action Our military procurement is rotten to the core.

    "Elbit Systems of America, a wholly owned subsidiary of Elbit Systems Ltd. has announced that Brigadier General (Ret.) James Moran has joined the company in its Washington, D.C., office as the vice president for Army solutions. In this role, Moran will be responsible for leading campaigns aimed at providing mission-critical solutions for key customers of Elbit Systems of America."

    Here is the Israelie company website :

    I remember wearing dress Khakis one day, and dress greens the next day, and those bases were only 90 miles apart. One had "summer" weather, and the other was always cold and rainy, "winter" weather....The jungle fatigues weren't issued until you arrived in the jungle, imagine that!!!!

    This Elbit Systems Israeli arms company even has it's very own political action committee to influence American policy. (BTW, Who really knows how many millions this Israeli corporate warmonger corporation secretly gives to right wing super PACs who will own Romney and the Republicans who are elected ???)

    Wake up! Romney IS their puppet
