“The Usually Sacrosanct Defense Budget”

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , — Walter Ebmeyer @ 3:27 pm

Columbia Journalism Review talks about The Sustainable Defense Task Force and the shocking story it tells about the lack of audited controls on Pentagon spending and the usual failure of the press to cover it.  This is the investigative group set up by Congressmen Barney Frank and Ron Paul in their efforts to cut military spending.  There is a link in the article to the Task Force’s report, all 56 pages of it.
