DHS Reacts To Times Square Attempted Bombing By Cutting New York Anti-Terror Funds

This story is really hard to understand. The Department of Homeland Security is planning to cut anti-terror funding for New York City.

The Politico reported:
The Department of Homeland Security told congressional officials Wednesday that it's moving to make cuts in anti-terror funding to New York City, less than two weeks after cops helped thwart and attempted car bombing in Times Square -- an effort the White House has since pinned on the Pakistani Taliban.

The cuts, lawmakers were told, amount to about 25 percent for port security, and another 27 percent for transit security, according to several reports.
