Harry Reid Lies Again

The Pentagon is planning a test detonation of a large amount of explosives in a Nevada test range. Harry Reid is opposed to this because, as he said:

“I am concerned that tests of this magnitude have been planned without providing Nevadans with any information about the possible impact on their health or safety,” said Democratic Sen. Minority Leader Harry Reid in a statement Thursday.

Of course this does not exactly square with the facts in the case. The reality is notifications were sent in December and a response was received in January:

Morgan said the site obtained the required state approvals and air quality permits in January. Officials from the National Nuclear Security Administration, which operates the site, alerted the state’s congressional delegation and state government in December.

The Nevada Department of Administration responded with a letter stating: “Your proposal is not in conflict with state plans, goals or objectives.”

I would imagine Reid is part of the Congressional delegation. He either did not pay attention to it or he did not read it. The fact is though, the notifications were made and the State signed off on it.

So Harry, climb back under your rock and stop lying to people.

    He is a moron. This test is the best thing we can do now to send a message to Iran. As I say, “Negotiating with Iran, like teaching a pig to sing?”. Negotiations won’t do anything, we need to bomb those suckers!

    When I saw the title, I immediately reflected, what current Democrat doesn’t lie, with exception of Joe Lieberman and Zel Miller?

    I reflected further on good old Dingy Harry. He is weak on defense, weak on security, weak on terror, and weak in the brains.

    Rick Roberts, KFMB San Diego, gave a good rundown on the Dems back in October that I posted on my site. Here is a link to that classic rundown: http://thebosunlocker.blogspot.com/2005/10/great-news-i-received-permission-from.html

    Just look at how the Dems badmouthed the Iraqis on the eve of their election in December:

    I certainly hope the American voter remembers the checkered past of Dingy Harry and the rest of the boys and girls of the liberal left. I feel so sorry for Joe being chastised and Zel being excommunicated.
