Money to Burn

Here's the link for the new GAO report on the costs and risks associated with building major new weapons systems.

Tim Weiner released a story on it in today's New York Times.

It seems like everybody who looks at the problem figures the costs are going to erupt, and the costs for major new weapons systems have already doubled in the last five years.

This guy, called "Plutonium Page," from daily Kos has a really good diary on it, with great comments.
