'Whistleblower' in White House security clearance office gets suspended
Tricia Newbold was suspended less than a week after NBC reported Jared Kushner's top-secret security clearance was approved over staff objections.

Nobody to this day knows how many ICBM's China has because they are road mobile, hidden in caves and China has always refused to discuss it.

That makes a START treaty impossible to extend. It makes strategic arms control impossible to conduct.

Snipster, this stuff could be better put under the World Round-ups, Tweets for the Day, or picture of the day (no so much).

Maybe the snipster should stay on target and quit bitching.
