Gates sounds alarm on budget priorities
from Army Times
The nation's top civilian defense official has sounded his loudest alarm yet on military spending, calling for an across-the-board review of all Pentagon spending and operations. In a speech at the Eisenhower Presidential Library in Abilene, Kan., Defense Secretary Robert Gates put the defense establishment and Congress on notice that the military must cut overhead, find a way to rein in explosive growth in medical spending and other personnel costs, and curb the exponentially rising costs of modern weapons systems.
