House Republicans and the War on Terror

Just read this article about the links between Abramoff, Delay, the Marianas, and terrorism. Sounds to me like money takes precedence over safety. More business as usual, I'm afraid... The House Republicans never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity. They should be doing everything they can to fight terror, but if it goes against their own financial interests, they make the wrong decision. But maybe there's hope, now that Delay's out:

In other news, House members are asking Bush to seek emergency funding for free credit monitoring for the former and current military personnel whose data was on that stolen VA laptop. I wonder if he'll do the right thing and ask for that funding, or just ignore it? This is a big deal -- if someone were to use that data to impersonate military personnel to get onto military bases, they could do a lot of damage.
