Proposed Environmental Rollbacks Sold As National Security Measures

Minnesotan Democratic Congressman Martin Olav Sabo argues that Bush Administration proposals framed as matters of military readiness and patriotism are just the latest efforts to roll back environmental laws.

Now as the administration blurs lines between national interest and security, our troops will return to an even more endangered environment.
