Well done, guys.

Reply Brad Kozak says: March 4, 2010 at 21:52 I grew up in Shreveport, just across the river from Bossier City. A couple of comments…I don't know if you're aware of it, but when all that post-9/11 money suddenly became available, cities and parishes (counties in LA) had to figure out how to spend it – or lose it. A huge number of DHS programs are complete flights of fancy. Having said that, the largest Strategic Air Command base in the U.S. is HQ'd at Barksdale AFB – in Bossier City. So it's not like Bossier is the kind of place that would never attract the attention of terrorists or any other bunch of nutjobs. I'm not sure exactly what the goal of this program is/was, but it just has the feel of "let's put something together to get some of that DHS money" rather than "we have a legit need…now let's fill it." The woman I'm dating used to live in the U.A.E. and has some, shall we say, STRONG opinions on Islam, terrorism, and how Muslims are portrayed in this country. Can't wait to see what she thinks about this video. Did I mention she lives in Bossier? Reply Write a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
