Your Tax Dollars At Work

The New York Times has an editorial inspired by an article in the Washington Post that shows how President Bush's let-them-eat-cake attitude has trickled down into the upper ranks of the Air Force.

According to the article, generals in the US Air Force are spending an estmated $7.6 million of funds specifically designated for counterterrorism on a number of 18-by-9-foot "Senior Leader Intransit Comfort Capsules." These capsules will have "aesthetically pleasing wall treatments and coverings." Each capsule will be carpeted, and will contain a DVD player, a 37-inch flat-screen monitor with stereo speakers, a couch, footrests, a table, leather covered swivel chairs, comfortable beds and a full-length mirror.

According to the New York Times, the Air Force reduced the number of capsules on order after the project was uncovered by a private watchdog group, the Project on Government Oversight.
