    This cartoon implies that there might be waste, fraud, and abuse with the Pentagon or in any Defense spending.
    -
    Everyone knows that’s not the case. There is NO waste, fraud or abuse within the Pentagon. Never has been. We NEED every single one of those flag officers.
    -
    And every one of our weapons systems, even the ones the Pentagon doesn’t want.

    Negative, this cartoon is outright stating that ignored criminal activity is rampant.

    They can get all that from the Washington Post and the New York Times. Did they hack past the paywalls, or just use some of their massive US$ warchest?

    Why, I’m SHOCKED that someone could even suggest such a thing as Waste, Fraud, and Mismanagement in the Military!
    -
    EVERYONE knows that $600 hammers, and $1000 toilet seats are vital to our countries defense, along with needing 8 copies of EVERY SINGLE BIT of paperwork ever needed for ANY transaction in the service!

    -And, we MUST continue the proud and noble tradition of “No-Bid Contracts” to corporations run by High Government Officials, Forcing the military to buy weapons systems that don’t work to keep Congressmen Happy, and bloated budgets to support the troops in several wars we NEVER should have been involved in in the first place!!

    Every government appears to be a kleptocracy.

    The way that some of that insane over-billing worked was pointed out in an investigation about replacing the seat leg tips used on some AWACS Planes.
    The rubber tip for the seat leg that was attached to the console was included in the total plans of the console, so therefore, it was classified “Secret”, which meant that it HAD to be purchased through a subcontractor for Boeing, or the designer and builder of the electronics console, and not able to be bought on the open market!
    The bottom line was that a chair leg tip that costs about $!.29 at Loews or Home Depot, cost the Defense Department about $25 apiece.
    Ain’t Government Procurement great??

    “Not really, just built to “milspec” and contract given to unqualified minority owned (straw) companies.
    Been there, worked in procurement.”
    .
    The “$600 hammers” are an interesting example of how “military procurement” works.
    .
    The identical hammer, but without the “Stanley” trademark, was already available in military stock for a reasonable price.
    .
    But some procurement officer somewhere decided he had to have “Stanley” hammers – you know, with the trademark, because identical hammers without it weren’t as good, you know? – and put through a requisition for “X” number of “Stanley” hammers. Apparently he figured someonew would ust run down to Ace Hardware with a purchase order.
    .
    Nope.
    .
    By the time all the paperwork and ancillary gubbins and bureaucratic doodahs were done, the cost of those hammers did, indeed, work out to $600 each.
    .
    But if he’d just been willing to accept what was in the system – not nearly.
