Pentagon to Close Ellington Air Base - Bad Move

The Pentagon in its infinite wisdom has decided to remove our F-16's from Ellington air field.

This is a bad, bad, dumb move. Houston and its port are a major potential target. Having fighters come from San Antonio is too little too late.

And it happened despite Mr. DeLay. Houston just lost a big one that could be very costly.

So, the district would have fared no worse with a freshman GOP Congressman. The incumbent saw no problem with our security despite the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center and bombings of U.S. targets in 1996, 1998, and 2000.

In fact, the district might have fared better if a new Congressman with a track record of counter terrorism consulting had been involved in the decision-making process.

Houston just became a more inviting target by this move...
