MHN: Intell Breach by Congressman, US Paying Big Overseas


Rick Rogers – Military Headline News

No free lunch overseas
The United States is paying more to keep military bases in foreign lands than in the past.
A review by the Senate Armed Services Committee found the US spends more than $10 billion each year to maintain overseas locations.
Seventy percent of that money goes to installations in: Germany, Japan and South Korea.
More pink slips for civilian Air Force workers
The service will start cutting another thousand civilian positions at 60 bases later this year as a result of sequestration.
The mandated budget move has already forced the Air Force to trim more than 16,000 civilian positions. Many of those cuts were achieved through by hiring freezes and voluntary early retirements.
A Big opps!
A mislabeled intelligence report caused a congressman to publicly reveal classified material.
The intelligence breach happened during an open House hearing. That’s when Congressman Doug Lamborn read from a cleared defense intelligence report that said North Korea had the capability to mount a nuclear warhead on a ballistic missile.
