Hastert Used Military Aircraft To Fly Foley Page Scandal Figure To
The media continues to pound a false Washington Times report accusing
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) of wasting government resources by
"demanding permanent access to a large military jet for herself, her
staff, other Members and supporters."
In fact, Pelosi's office has stated repeatedly, from the beginning, that
"it is up to the Air Force to decide what type and size of plane will be
required," and that she "will not use the plane for political travel."
Conservatives have tried to bolster their attack by claiming that former
Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-IL) only used his military aircraft for
official business. The Washington Times quoted an unnamed "former
Hastert aide" saying Hastert "did not use military planes for political
trips or regularly transport his family." But Chicago Sun-Times reporter
Lynne Sweet says that isn't true:
On Sunday, Oct. 1, Hastert's team was scrambling to contain the
escalating fallout from the Foley page scandal.
That day, Rep. John Shimkus (R-Ill.), then the chairman of the page
board, had gotten an urgent phone call from Stokke. The Hastert team
wanted Shimkus to return to Washington immediately from his home in
southern Illinois in order to appear at a press conference on Monday
with the Speaker, and they did not want to deal with commercial flight
So at 8 p.m. that day, Shimkus arrived at the military side of the Scott
Air Force Base near Belleville to board the Speaker's jet that had been
dispatched for him. More Outside Link

House security chief: Pelosi didn't ask for plane; I did
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi did not request a larger plane for personal use
to travel cross-country without stopping, Bill Livingood, the House sergeant
at arms, said Thursday.
Livingood said the request was his, and he made it for security reasons.
From the story:
Pelosi is striking back against accusations she
asked for a plane larger and more expensive than the
one used by former House Speaker Dennis Hastert, a
claim published last week in The Washington
The Times article, headlined "Pelosi's Power Trip --
Non-stop Nancy Seeks Flight of Fancy," led the
Republican National Committee to send out a research
briefing and blast Pelosi on the House floor.
The Washington Times is a Sun Myung Moon-owned
horseshit "newspaper" that is a Republican tool. It is
not in any way a legitimate newspaper.

Murtha said he is convinced the Pentagon has been leaking information about
the possibility that Pelosi would use large military planes to make her look
bad. But he said, "They're making a mistake when they leak it because she
decides on allocations for them,'' referring to the Pentagon budget.
And you 'pubs are just plain stupid.

She has publically stated that she simply wants a plane that can make the
trip nonstop. The plane Hasturt used is too small and would require
refueling. If they have to stop for refueling in the middle of nowhere, it
will add major time to the trip, as well as increase the security risk -
which is the entire reason the Speaker has been assigned a plane anyway.

They can stop at a military airfield with no security risk. And if Air
Force One can land on a civilian airfield, so can her royal highness Nancy.

Bush didn't land for a long time on 9/11 since it was a risk. Keep
in mind all these changes came about due to 9/11 and way before Pelosi
was speaker. She is afterall number 3 in line to the Presidency.

Here's the problem. When something is funny you laugh. You don't have to
wait for explanations, you just laugh. So try again and remember, you've
got to make people laugh to be funny.
Predictably, you got it backward. You've got to be
funny to make people laugh.
BTW, note that the twat to whom you're responding
refers to me as a "lib", by which I presume he means

consistency problem at work here.
