Feds chop $170 million in anti-terror funding - US news - Security - msnbc.com

What if we advertised where we're not going to focus on terrorism as much (or at all)? It's hard to believe grown up people can act like this, and it's just as hard to believe that grown ups defend this silly nonsense.
Why is there always money for war, but none for education?

There is no additional intelligence that can be gained from this by terrorists. The identity of receiving cities/states is already public information.

$170m isn't very much.
