The Oakland International Airport did not break any laws or regulations when it denied 200 Marines and soldiers access to the passenger terminal during a layover last year from Iraq to the troops' home base in Hawaii, the Transportation Department says.
Really! How about the laws of hospitality toward our sons and daughters fighting the godless Orcs and protecting our freedoms. How about the laws against egregious Stupidity? !
The contract to allow military layovers at the California airport "did not require that military personnel have access to the airport terminal; it only required that military personnel be allowed to deplane and stretch their legs on stops lasting over one hour,".
Isn't that just so sweet and totally STUPID. Can you believe this the the land of the free and the home of the brave.
