Now, Clinton has the chutzpah to declare that President Bush is putting a "drain on our military." Isn't that a little like Pol Pot blaming his successor for the sudden and acute labor shortage in Cambodia?
Let's look at the record, shall we?
- 18 Army divisions down to 10 during Clinton administration
- 24 wings in the Air Force down to 13
- 600 ships in the Navy to less than 300
- Massive cuts to intelligence services and assets
President Clinton was responsible for a wholesale dismantling of the defense of this country, and he says Bush is draining the military? Next thing you know Ol' Bill will be saying Bush is putting a strain on the White House intern staff.
