Procurement: February 9, 2001


New Defense Secretary Rumsfeld has changed from the stretch limos used by Secretary Cohen to much smaller cars, and it appears that the defense budget will not gain the $50-100 billion a year that the military wants. Not in the first year, anyway. Rumsfeld is conducting another top-to-bottom review of the military, with particular note that the most likely enemies for a surprise war in the next decade (North Korea, Iraq, Iran) just are not that tough.--Stephen V Cole
