The US military budget is now bigger than ever. But the war machine that’s been built up over many decades is not making America any safer, and leaders in Washington aren’t dealing with the asymmetric warfare that has caused real harm.
The Pentagon’s newly disclosed UFO program discovered wondrous, strange and, perhaps, unexplainable sightings. But scientists argue that mystefying objects need not be interstellar in origin.
Republicans portray themselves as the strongest supporters of the military. But when the Pentagon warns that global warming threatens US national security, they are nowhere to be found.
Instead of living on US military bases at a relatively small cost, the employees of a controversial Pentagon program luxuriated in private villas at a cost of $150 million to taxpayers.
