Sequester Problems at DOD, Right?

Yah, that header is snark.

The Washington Post has some interesting details of emails sent by Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) contracting and budget officers to their colleagues.
Our available funding balances remain large in all appropriations — too large to spend” just on small supplemental funds often required by existing contracts, the June 27 e-mail said. DISA’s budget is $2 billion.

“It is critical in our efforts to [spend] 100% of our available resources this fiscal year,” said the e-mail from budget officer Sannadean Sims and procurement officer Kathleen Miller. “It is also imperative that your organization meets its projected spending goal for June. . .

Yet they found a way to cut the pay of 650,000 employees by 20% between now and 9/30/13.

The War Party will find a way to fix this.  There must be some grease-spot on the face of the Earth requiring a few hundred thousand US troops for a couple of years.  We can give 'em a good dose of democracy lessons or something, right?
