Liar Liar

"The 2004 Defense Authorization Bill would strengthen ``buy American'' laws, requiring the Pentagon to purchase products with at least 65 percent U.S.-made parts. Current regulations on Pentagon purchases require that at least 50 percent of a product's components be made domestically.

Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-San Diego, is the force behind the latest ``buy American'' legislation. ``Having a dependency on foreign countries for our military resources is not in the best interest of America's national security policy,'' explained Hunter spokesman Michael Harrison."

whaddacrocka ... i read in Kevin Phillips' new book, that we cannot supply our own troops with the tools and weapons they need,because so much of our industry is now chinese. Even our army pistol is a baretta. And this Duncan wants to lock the barn door after the horse has been turned into chop suey?.... good man. a credit to his party... (sarc)
