It is good to see Pierre Sprey come out of retirement to weigh in on the problems of our defense industry. The part of the letter explaining the need for defense reform is great, but the recommendations for reform are lacking. Bring in a bunch of accountants to pencil whip the problem away? Right.

Now I'm not saying that proper accounting for how our money is spent is not a good thing. It certainly should be done. It will not fix what is wrong, though. Put an end to paying profit on development will remove the financial incentive to drag out programs and drive their development costs through the roof. Let's start with the most obvious problem first and work our way down through the list from there. That's what makes sense.

Happy Thanksgiving to all who want to take our country back from those who are robbing this country of its defense.
