    Default Pelosi Flying High!!

    House Speaker Issued Unprecedented Demands for Military Aircraft and Wasted Taxpayer Resources With Last Minute Cancellations

    WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwire) -- 03/10/09 -- Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced today that it has obtained documents from the Department of Defense (DOD) detailing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's multiple requests for military air travel. The documents, obtained by Judicial Watch through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), include internal DOD email correspondence detailing attempts by DOD staff to accommodate Pelosi's numerous requests for military escorts and military aircraft as well as the speaker's last minute cancellations and changes. The following are a few highlights from the documents, which can be read in their entirety at www.judicialwatch.org:

    -- In response to a series of requests for military aircraft, one Defense
    Department official wrote, "Any chance of politely querying [Pelosi's team]
    if they really intend to do all of these or are they just picking every
    weekend?... [T]here's no need to block every weekend 'just in case'... "
    The email also notes that Pelosi's office had, "a history of canceling many
    of their past requests."

    -- One DOD official complained about the "hidden costs" associated with
    the speaker's last minute changes and cancellations. "We have... folks
    prepping the jets and crews driving in (not a short drive for some),
    cooking meals and preflighting the jets etc."

    -- The documents include a discussion of House Ethics rules and Defense
    Department policies as they apply to the speaker's requests for staff,
    spouses and extended family to accompany her on military aircraft. In May
    2008, for example, Pelosi requested that her husband join her on a
    Congressional Delegation (CODEL) into Iraq. The DOD explained to Pelosi
    that the agency has a written policy prohibiting spouses from joining
    CODEL's into combat zones.

    -- Documents obtained from the U.S. Army include correspondence from
    Speaker Pelosi's office requesting an Army escort and three military planes
    to transport Pelosi and other members of Congress to Cleveland, Ohio, for
    the funeral services of the late Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones. Pelosi noted
    in her letter of August 22, 2008, that such a request, labeled "Operation
    Tribute," was an "exception to standard policy."

    -- The documents also detail correspondence from intermediaries for
    Speaker Pelosi issuing demands for certain aircraft and expressing outrage
    when requested military planes were not available. "It is my understanding
    there are NO G5s available for the House during the Memorial Day recess.
    This is totally unacceptable... The Speaker will want to know where the
    planes are... " wrote Kay King, Director of the House Office of
    Interparliamentary Affairs. In a separate email, when told a certain type
    of aircraft would not be available, King writes, "This is not good news,
    and we will have some very disappointed folks, as well as a very upset
    [s]peaker."

    -- During another email exchange DOD staff advised Kay King that one
    Pelosi military aircraft request could not be met because of "crew rest
    requirements" and offered to help secure commercial travel. Kay King
    responded: "We appreciate the efforts to help the codel [sic] fly
    commercially but you know the problem that creates with spouses. If we can find another way to assist with military assets, we would like to do that."

    Speaker Pelosi came under fire in 2007 for requesting a 42-seat Air Force carrier to ferry the Speaker and her staff back and forth between San Francisco, CA and Washington, DC. Former House Speaker Dennis Hastert was allowed access to a 12-seat commuter jet for security reasons after the events of 9/11.

    "Taken together, these documents show that Speaker Pelosi treats the Air Force like her personal airline," said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. "Not only does Speaker Pelosi issue unreasonable requests for military travel, but her office seems unconcerned about wasting taxpayer money with last minute cancellations and other demands."

    Visit www.JudicialWatch.org to view the documents related to Nancy Pelosi's requests for military travel.

    --------------------

    I read these planes cost taxpayers 15K/hour to operate. I have no problem with Pelosi using the planes, but scheduling and canceling them when they cost us this much money, and demanding certain model planes, come on.

    This cunt and her Commie San Francisco toadies drove the military out of SF Bay Area.

    Now she treats them as her own private taxi service.

    What's wrong with her broom anyway?

    I think Pelosi is an idiot.

    She can't even put a sentence together with both hands and a dictionary, yet here she is Speaker of the House.

    It is a tribute to the American people that we are as successful as we are with the morons we continue to put in elected office.

    Is this stemming from her crying early on when she became Speaker that they wouldn't let her use the smaller planes (besides AF1)?? Or is this something totally different. I say fuck her, but if they keep doing it let her ride in a transport plane ala C-130. I hear those planes are quite smooth

    IMO, Nancy Pelosi = Cunt Whore...

    Not to copy Axxmann but when I read the title of this thread I thought "What has this cunt done now" I don't even think of my ex that way. Sorry about the language but she deserves it.

    "This leadership team will create the most honest, most open, and most ethical Congress in history" - Speaker-Elect Nancy Pelosi (D-CA),
    I guess she meant right now, as I am speaking and not doing anything when she made this statement a few years back. This woman is such a Cunt.

    This coming from the same person who announced that Congress was going to be "carbon-neutral" by eliminating carbon emissions and buying carbon credits for the excess--those credits being funding towards "carbon saving programs," like bagging cow farts. Which, by the way, they quietly abandoned for being impractical.

    This bitch has two faces, and both are ugly as shit.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    Smooth Ms. Speaker, real smooth. And we thought he republicans were looking like shit before, the new administration is only 50 days in, and I can't wait to see what's ahead. Oh! and I'm waiting for the bipartisanship that the new administration promised.

    Sometimes we are all going to recognize that there is no real difference in the parties, there is an equal amount of ignorance on both sides of the isle.

    I dont get all the Pelosi hate.
    I've been dealing with her on a professional basis and she and her staff have been quite forthcoming.
    Is it some anti-SF thing? Well, then let's have any of your red states come up with something like google. See, you do need liberal SF when it comes to technology! When was the last technological breakthrough to come out of Jacksonville or Baton Rouge?
