Manufacturers lobby against deeper defense cuts – Yahoo!

Talk about over-the-top.

“American leadership in aerospace and defense is being threatened by forces in Congress and the administration,” the association said.

The article goes on to state later that Defense spending has nearly tripled since 9/11, not including the 1+ trillion for the wars.

My complaint isn’t that the deficit reduction committee is going after (in a mild manner of speaking) the Pentagon, but that they’re not going after the so-called black budgets.
