    Sorry for a late comment. Just what is wastful or inefficent Defense spending can be in the eye of the beholder. Consider that the Air Force got more C-17s than it wanted. It has been a truism that the US military has never had sufficent airlift (or sealift), this is because neither the US Air Force or the US Navy like playing “bus driver” for the US Army. The two prefer to have just enough “lift” to move their own personnel while having a little left over to move Army forces if they really, really have to.
