Nunes Wanted To Move New American Military Base From UK To Azores. Russia Would Like That: [View all]

Nunes lied saying it was to save money. But his idea about the Azores was way more expensive.

So why did he really want to move the US military center from the UK to the Azores... and FURTHER AWAY FROM EUROPE?

Hmmm, who wants to break up NATO?

Kudos to DU'er MARCUSE for this tip.


Thatís an option Nunes has called on the Pentagon to consider, because he says itíll be cheaper in the long run. But the Pentagon study found that moving the intelligence center to the Azores base, called Lajes Field, would actually cost $1.4 billion, as opposed to the $817 million it says Nunes claims.

Alternatively, the cost of building the facility at the Croughton air base in the U.K., the Pentagonís recommended location, is only $356 million, the study found. It also concluded that Nunes had underestimated the recurring annual costs of the Azores option by $11 million.
