The Pentagon's Parentage

Here's a stat which should boil the blood of actual soldiers, sailors, AND citizens:

...More than 1 million people are Defense Department bureaucrats, compared to the 1.3 million active troops on duty.

Which leads us here:

...the Pentagon could save $125 billion over five years by streamlining its bureaucracy. Fully one-quarter of the defense budget was spent on overhead, an alarming finding....

So.  The military-industrial complex mated with greed beyond the dreams of avarice, and produced the Pentagon.  Frankenstein was a darling compared to this baby.
