    positions on this? DO they even HAVE a position on it? This needs to be put front and center of their respective committees in the senate and house and the administration & Pentagon have got to be made to answer for it. Like so much else these days, it is both the militarily and morally right thing to do AND the politically smart thing to do.

    I will do a bit of research on this (only to be better informed when I contact the above reps and senators) and then contact them all via email or phone. I will try to do the same with the GOP ones as well. They need to feel the heat. It's the only thing they listen to, it seems.

    Thanks for bringing this up. It's important both specifically and generally.

      The links in all of my previous diaries will provide a good start.

      The whole issue of procurement is unbelievable. If you read through the comment threads in the earlier diaries, you'll come across some amazing stories - including, as someone mentioned upthread, an Israeli anti-RPG system that supposedly kicks Raytheon's product's ass, and some medical supplies (can't remember the specifics) where the inferior product was given the contract.

      And we are talking BIG bucks here.

      Go for it. Good on ya!

        if you know what I mean--ask Major Danby.

        And the folks responsible for this need to be hauled before congress ASAP and then impeached (if that still applies to them), put on trial, convicted and put away for a very, very long time. No more Watergate or Iran-Contra slaps on the wrist.

        If this whole dark chapter in US history is to truly end, this MUST happen.
