In it, but not of it. TPM DC

Procurement Reform is Sexy, Honest

At a time of two wars and a recession, looking for cost cutting at the Pentagon isn't going to be front and center on a president's agenda but it needs to be there. Again, I'm not talking about the obvious cost overruns of a Halliburton or the issues about troop rotations that have disrupted the lives of so many members of the Armed Forces and their families. But the sheer process by which we buy multibillion dollar weapons systems. Hope to do much more on this in the coming weeks. We welcome the thoughts of TPM readers on this topic and any tips they wish to offer.
