Taking Texas And The Nation Back

My View on the Dateline BodyArmor follow up: Greed

Posted by bosskitty on May 20, 2007

Thank you Dateline NBC for the followup story about the Army body armor scandal.  So, the General does NOT see a problem that Army’s Interceptor body armor testers retired to cushy jobs with the manufacturer.  The Army won’t use Dragon Skin, but the CIA does. Plus, the man who helped design Interceptor claims he would choose Dragon Skin over his original design.   Soldiers in the field envy the few who manage to get Dragon Skin. It is shameful that the Army Brass tells soldiers ‘if they get killed while wearing Dragon Skin, their families won’t get benefits’!  This is only a $30 Million dollar contract after all.

Misery vs. Money, you be the judge   You bet that our mercenaries are wearing Dragon Skin.

So, once again, greed trumps the safety of our troops.   The corrupt system is a too well oiled machine. Whoever got bought off will never be brought to justice, money drives the show and lines the pockets of those in charge.
