The DangerRoom and Spencer Ackerman's blogs seem to feel that SecDef Gates is running an extremely tight ship, and getting rid of a lot of corporate welfare in a way that is surprising the military contractors. I have a feeling that we shouldn't put our money on the defense companies winning this one.

Hi Mithras,

Thanks for the link.

The defense industry lobbyists are determined that future cuts in defense spending - and everyone knows they are coming in 2012-2016 - will come at the expense of personnel, readiness, operations - basically anything except procurement. Their knives are out and they will be playing for keeps because, as you suggested, they do not have everyone lined up on their side this time around.
