White House Petition Asks Obama Not to Shut Down TARS Air Defense System on Southern Border

White House “We The People Petition” Created to Protect U.S. Border and Keeps TARS Air Defense. The petition asks Obama to keep the Tethered Aerostat Radar System Operational in order to help secure the Southern Border of the United States. I don’t know who started this petition, but it seems like a good idea to bring awareness, even if Obama probably doesn’t give a darn about these White House petitions and probably puts your name on a list of people who do not support him. I am already on his black list though, I am sure, so I do not care if he sees me sign the petition, and it looks good/gets more attention in the media to have alot of people sign the petition.
Don't know what this petition is about?
We petition the obama administration to:
Keep the Tethered Aerostat Radar System Operational in order to help secure the Southern Border of the United States.
The Tethered Aerostat Radar System (TARS) is due to be shut down on 15 March. This shutdown will open one more door to those wishing to bring narcotics into our country or otherwise violate our Southern Border by removing a vital sensor system that is used by the Coast Guard, CBP, and other agencies. Direct the US Air Force and/or the Department of Homeland Security to continue operating this system in Puerto Rico, Florida, Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico. If we truly are concerned with the War on Drugs and wish to have a cost effective sensor to fight that war, then this sensor must remain active. Created: Jan 19, 2013
