CLINTON OPPOSED BUNKER BUSTERS

VOTED NO ON BOMBS TO PENETRATE N. KOREAN BUNKERS

John Spencer, the Republican-Conservative candidate for U.S. Senate, today called on Senator Clinton to explain her May, 2003 vote (S. 1050, roll call 189. May 21, 2003) against research and development of "Bunker Buster" technology.

Spencer's comments came in light of North Korea's claim that they had carried out an underground test on a nuclear device.

John Spencer said; "Two days ago, North Korea, a rogue nation ruled by a totalitarian despot, detonated an underground nuclear explosion. Three months ago, North Korea test fired a missile capable of carrying a nuclear warhead to U. S. soil. Three years ago, Senator Clinton voted to block the research, development and testing of weapons that could destroy the underground bunkers that are used in the development of, and are destined to house these weapons of mass destruction. 56 Senators, Republicans and Democrats, voted to develop "Bunker Buster" bombs while Senator Clinton and 38 other liberal Democrats voted against them. It's bad enough that her husband allowed North Korea to become a nuclear power. It's inexcusable that Senator Clinton voted against the weapons needed to protect our nation and our allies from the crazed actions of a communist dictator who starves, imprisons and murders his own people. Senator Clinton needs to explain her vote on this issue. Whether its Islamic fascists in Iran or Stalinist dictators in North Korea, America must have the weapons needed to stop them from launching a nuclear attack."
