Pentagon News on VA ID Loss Grim.

The Pentagon announced that the Veterans Administration, a favorite wrapper of the Republican party, lost 2.2 million records of active duty personnel.

Pentagon and VA officials made the announcement after revealing that a check of a slide rule showed that 2.2 million is a bit more than the 50,000 records Navy officials had earlier admitted were stolen.

Democrats, such as Illinois Congressman Lane Evans, a Marine Corps veteran who is also a retiring member of the Veterans Affairs Committee, called the security breach "breathtaking" and called on the GAO to begin an immediate investigation.

Congressional Republicans talked about their Cute Little Gay Marriage Amendment today, hoping to gain another two years of "leadership" of a wholly incompetent government, and the total plunder of the nation's treasury.
