So let me understand…..
When Sequester began, we were told by the Administration we could not send an additional aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf. As a minor addition, the Marine Band was told it could no longer do guest appearances in parades. Yet;
This past weekend we flew B-2 bombers to and from South Korea as a show of strength. We have also dispatch our stealth aircraft F-22’s to South Korea as well as several naval ships as a continued show of strength.
When the Marine Band told New York City, it could not march in the St Patrick’s Day Parade due to funding cuts, Senator Chuck Schumer intervened. Suddenly the funds were found and the band did keep the engagement
The money suddenly appeared to fund major aircraft flights and ship deployments to South Korea. Also, the money suddenly appeared to fund the Marine Band performance in NY. Maybe this was their April fool’s joke on the Nation or do you get the feeling the Administration might not have been honest with us over Sequester?
