Whiskey Tango "Fox Mulder", Over!
Anyone who has been following my rants about the Pentagon knows that I am suspicious about where the money is going. Congress has never failed to come up with the money requested by the Pentagon, but that money is not being spent for body armor, or up-armoring vehicles as assumed by Congress. If it were there wouldn't be any complaints.

sent me a note about this Defense Tech article
which is pushing me towards X Files
If Air Combat Command is cutting its training flight schedule by 60% during a time of "war" for budgetary reasons, given the increased Defense Budget, and the special appropriations for the operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, somebody is lying like hell. In excess of a quarter-billion dollars is real money even in the Defense Department. This isn't a misplaced decimal point.
What is going on in the Pentagon? Where is the Congressional oversight? WHERE IS THE MONEY?
