    "Defense Secretary Leon Panetta declared global warming a national security threat yesterday during a speech before an environmentalist group in Washington, D.C"

    Preposterous.

    Why is the Defense Secretary addressing an Environmentalist Group?

    On a related topic, do you want to know what i think is hilarious? The Hole in the Ozone. Notice how nobody talks about that anymore?

    Back in the early 90's, it was all the rage, and we were all going to die within ten years………….

    Incidentally, here is background information on the Environmental Defense Fund that Panetta addressed. http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/Articles/ENVIR...

      Cowboy there is NO stopping this nonsense.
      Studies may show that the closing of the ozone hole may be contributing to global warming. http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/01/1001...
      Can you say circle jerk?

      The Hole in the White House is more of a threat.

      Freon and zenon were the causes, amongst others that amount to < than a breaths % of the atmosphere.
      I still have a can of freon from the old days. I'm going to release it when you know who croaks.

      I'm just happy Barry doesn't have him doing outreach to the middle east…yet.

    Gawd… How damn long can these people continue to promote this washed up racehorse?

    Every election they pull him out of the stable, polish him up and run him out as though he were a shiny new two year old.

    The horse is dead Panetta, you're preaching to the choir…

      What was that old saying you can polish a turd (and yes mythbusters did) but it's still a turd…

  3. I_Me_Mine says:

    OUR national security threat is open borders and those that support said same.
    The borders we have are NOT a suggestion.

    • tiredofit2012 says:

      Yep it is.

    • di_da_is_alpha says:

      Open borders are just one of the symptoms. The disease that is the biggest threat to our national security is called 'The Federal Government.'

      • I_Me_Mine says:

        Agree. It's because they recite the words to "uphold and defend" and then 'party lines' mean more than the oath itself.

  4. Markg55 says:

    The greatest threat to our National Security is pure STUPIDITY.
    We need to re-think the Smart Bomb…….8>)
    Opps my bad…….you can't fix stupid…….you can only defund it or vote it out.

  5. Taxpayer1234 says:

    STFU, Panetta.

  6. CHICAGO RALPH says:

    Yeah,….ya got that right there Bazooka Nose…….

    a few more Solyndras and this nation is indeed cooked.

  7. ChiTownTom says:

    Serenity now!

  8. But he failed once again to address the grave threat this nation faces from the little orange men in my basement!!!!!!!!!!

    I am upset because the polar bear population is rising and the ice caps are not melting. I am upset because the earth has always warmed and cooled throughout its gazillion year life. I am upset because it seems that I, Man, cannot really change the world.

    What surprises me is how anyone would take this grinning idiot seriously…..

  11. Tomtom29 says:

    Hmmm… I'm growing concerned. I fear Panetta may be a dope.
