The article was run locally by the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, but it was sent out by AP.

AP: Administration Tried To Cut Anti-Terror Funding

POSTED: 8:31 am CDT August 12, 2006
UPDATED: 8:46 am CDT August 12, 2006

WASHINGTON -- The Bush administration quietly tried to cut $6 million that was earmarked for developing new explosives detection technology -- even as the British terror plot was unfolding.

Officials wanted to use the money instead on federal building protection. Congressional leaders rejected the idea.

The maneuver was one in a series of Homeland Security Department steps that left lawmakers and some of the department's own experts questioning the administration's commitment to create better anti-terror technologies.

An investigation by The Associated Press showed the department failed to spend $200 million in research and development money from past years, forcing lawmakers to rescind the money during the summer session of Congress.
