The House next week will consider the Democrat-crafted Intelligence Authorization bill, which includes a provision directing an assessment of the effects that climate change has on national security.Yeah, buddy. 'Cause ya know, those penguins down at the South Pole are getting pretty feisty, and if their demand aren't met, there's talk that they might attack us. No, really. We don't need to keep track of what Al-Qaida is doing. We don't need to keep an eye on Ahmed-is-a-nutjob over in Iran. Beacuse that doggone global warming, that's the real danger right there, yessireee-bob![...]
Intelligence panel Chairman Silvestre Reyes, Texas Democrat, said the climate-change study is one of several shifts his party has made to intelligence policy.
"We're concerned that global warming might impact our ability to maintain national security," he told The Times, describing the idea as "cutting edge."
"We want to get feedback from the intelligence community to understand if there are possible global issues," Mr. Reyes said.
Of course, what else would you expect fro Senate Democrats? This is the same group that consists of the likes of Teddy "I'll drink to that...and anything else" Kennedy, "Rosary Joe" Biden, Tsarina Hillary!, Difi, and Barbara Boxer. And now, Silvestre Reyes. These people wouldn't know how to use a steak knife to fight their way out of a wet paper bag. But, now, they're in charge of our military. Way to go, America.
