Now that there are no cost savings from this move the Army says that is not the prime reason for moving the mission at Ft Monmouth. Well - as Mr Victor Ferlise indicated there are absolutely no synergies in consolidating functions at Aberdeeen. The missions of the two bases are not complimentary.

If one soldiers life is lost as a result of this move it needs to be on the conscience of the people who deceived and "lied" to Congress and misled the BRAC Commission.

These hearings ned to go deeper and identify those people. Its time for real leaders to speak up and tell the truth - otherwise they are not leadeers but mere "followers".

Folks the whole BRAC execution is a disaster like everything else the Bush Regime has touched. Congress should halt all funding for BRAC projects right now and review the entire execution to date. Not to stop BRAC but to stop the waste and disarming the military which is what is really happening. Then proceed with BRAC properly as outlined with no more surprises or lies
