Having not read it, I have found through experience that much of that is politically motivated for funding of pet projects through Congress and the chain of dependence from business to politics. It is not the only reason but one of the many. On the other hand there are is a lot of people out there trying to do the right thing to protect us and do the work that is required to do that, regardless of personal risk. We just need to remember that when we speak in generalized terms of how screwed up the military industrial complex works to our benefit as a nation.
Anyone but the this most fuked up President in History in 2012!
