Docking a Carrier Amid Defense Cuts

The Bush administration wants a total of $60 billion in cuts to defense spending over the next six years. That could mean mothballing the aircraft carrier USS John F. Kennedy. The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq are eating away at the defense budget at a rate of $5 billion (with a "B") per month. (Houston Chronicle)

Nothing this administration does surprises me at this point. I trust nothing they say or do...there are invariably underlying motives, and those motives are not good.
