U.S. Air Force should buy new C-17s, not fixed-up C-5s
from Defense News
When does a promise to cut government spending result in $8 billion of new government waste? When Defense Department procurement is involved. Puzzling accounting in the Pentagon abounds. Weapon programs exceeded their budget by $300 billion in a single year. The Defense Department bought $13 billion in spare parts, $7 billion of which our troops don't need. Now, in its latest outrage, the department wants to pour $13 billion into its aging fleet of C-5 Galaxy cargo planes rather than purchase more capable aircraft, such as the C-17 Globemaster III.
