1. From U 2 pilots to drones.
An embassy housing 11,000. Exactly when did we get this insane?

An embassy housing 11,000, protected by 5000 security contractors, when we have the best military in the world and are cutting defense costs by telling them to go home.

Anything to privatize. Exactly when did we get this insane?

Supposedly, private security contractors cost less because we don't have to pay VA benefits.

I'd love to see the exact figures on that proposition. Yes, you guessed it. I don't believe it.
