Waste, fraud and abuse

Posted by lex on July 2nd, 2007

In a typical case of the bureaucracy run amok, the Pentagon has paid an Arizona contractor $900,000 to shred retired F-14’s that  have been heaped upon the Davis-Monthan boneyard.**

A mechanical monster grabs the F-14 fighter jet and chews through one wing and then another, ripping off the Tomcat’s appendages before moving onto its guts. Finally, all that’s left is a pile of shredded rubble — like the scraps from a Thanksgiving turkey.

Silly bureaucracy.

I’d have done the job for free.
