+ - What's wrong with the defense R & D Budget? P->

Submitted by
Harperdog
Harperdog writes "In-depth analysis of what constitutes defense R & D spending and how whacked it really is. Gives details about how research is classified. Here's a quote: "But much of what transpires in the name of military research and development is not research in the sense that it produces scientific and technical knowledge widely applicable inside and outside the Defense Department. A large part of defense R&D activity revolves around building very expensive gadgets that are often based on unsound technology and frequently fail to perform as required." Great detail and reporting."
