DHS to slash funds for NYC and Washington DC

You know, the two cities attacked on 9/11, and which are still the biggest targets for future attacks. Why is this so hard to get right?

The two cities attacked on Sept. 11, 2001, will receive far less antiterrorism money under plans unveiled today by the Department of Homeland Security, which has designated more money for many smaller cities throughout the country.

Washington and New York will receive 40 percent less in urban grant money compared to last year, with Washington dropping from $77 million to $46 million and New York falling from $207 million to $124 million, DHS officials said. The combined total means that the two areas bear almost the entire brunt of a $120 million cut in the overall budget for the program, the statistics show.

I mean doesn’t logic tell you that your big cities – especially these two cities – should be prioritized in homeland security efforts?

Oh wait, did I say logic? There’s the problem… these people seem to have a problem with higher brain functions.
