UMKC housing must be demolished?! And it is only 8 years old? Audit UMKC now! Cancel and bar all permits in the name of the original builder. What a disgrace and waste of taxpayer money. Those giving their money to UMKC should be able to trust this institution of higher learning to make wise investments.

Pompeo is defending war crimes, not troops. Just like his boss that pardons convicted war criminals and reinstates their rank over military objections.

If Pompeo wanted to defend troops, he should have apologized for the administration's belittling combat head injuries and related brain trauma as just headaches when asked in a congressional briefing.
