Bombing Big Sur,Counter Punch
Fort Hunter Leggett, located near California's scenic Big Sur, contains 'a greater conservation of resources (grassland, oak savanna, woodland, and chaparral) than any other contiguous parcel in the state' claims the fort's top brass. It is also the home of the endangered sea otter and the nearly extinct california condor. Yet, the Navy wants jets from nearby Lenmoore Naval Air Station and aircraft carriers floating in the Pacific to practice bombing runs (with 25-pound test bombs) on a portion of this land, reports Counter Punch. 'We have the best interests of these creatures at heart and no harm will come to them,' Navy officials claim.
