JUST IN TIME

The high terrorist-risk towns of Biwabik and Walker, Minn., recieved Department of Homeland Security grants supporting their fire demartment or ambulance service today.

And good thing, TDB intelligence finds that Al-Qaida, Hezbollah AND Hamas with sights on these metropolises.

C'mon.

Biwabik got $27,000 for its fire department and Walker received an $18,000 grant for its ambulance service.

Seriously, these towns could justifiably need funds, but why from Homeland Security?

I understand that post-9/11, the federal government consolidated intelligence departments with disaster relief and other focuses besides national security.

But shouldn't these funds be allocated on a state level. Why Homeland Security?

What makes this more fishy is how U.S. Congressman Jim Oberstar announced the news.

Could these funds be pork? Did Oberstar squeeze this earmarks into federal spending bills? If so, how many more are there? And how rampant is this?
