I was chatting recently with a senior officer who was telling sea stories about acquisitions -- and our recent "integrated partners" in particular -- and he was talking about a conversation -- I believe from several years ago -- where someone said that the money for aviation acquisitions wasn't going to do what it needed to do... and the response, the party line, from a very senior officer was, "Oh, don't worry, we'll always get more money," as if starting something we knew we couldn't afford wasn't all that big a deal as once started nothing could be stopped.
And people wonder why the members of the Legislative Branch of the government want to tighten down the oversight?
