The Best Offense
Congress’s Strategically Myopic Defense Cuts

    This is the second time WRM has, mistakenly in my view, referred to defense procurement policies as being guided by an unimaginative, nostalgic mindset that is stuck in World War II. Nothing could be further from the truth. Defense procurement is a cess-pit, in large part because all Congress cares about is delivering pork. The military-industrial complex is far from blameless, but as in so many other areas, Congress has abrogated its duty.
