Gates Pledges “Steady Growth in the Pentagon’s Budgets”

Defense Secretary Robert Gates hosted a meeting with the nation’s top defense company executives Wednesday, stressing the need for a closer partnership with them and pledging to work with the White House to secure steady growth in the Pentagon’s budgets over time, according to his spokesman.

Gates’s meeting was part of a day-long session between Deputy Defense Secretary William Lynn, Pentagon acquisition chief Ashton Carter and the Aerospace Industries Association, the top trade group for American aerospace firms. The heads of the nation’s top two defense firms – Lockheed Martin and Boeing – attended, said Pentagon spokesman Geoff Morrell.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks as though the Pentagon is committed to even more wars without end... while our infrastructure crumbles, our schools are a mess, and homeless Vets are sleeping in our streets!
