First let me say, I’m deeply grateful for the sacrifice and service of all of our veterans. All deserve our respect and we owe those confined to military hospitals a quality of care that reflects the heart of a grateful nation. That said, I don’t understand the decision by the Charles George Veterans Affairs Hospital in Asheville to spend nearly $1 million on an “anti-terrrorism” fence to prevent a suicide bomber (See article). The fence neither prevents terrorism, nor the possibility of a suicide bomber. The only thing the barrier keeps out is a healthy dose of common sense. A far better strategy for confronting terrorism would be for the feds to focus on probable – and not just possible – threats. Should VA facilities take extra precautions to reflect a dangerous world? Of course, but constructing a new fence is foolishness and a waste of taxpayers’ money.
