And they aren't alone, just about every part of government wants to get bigger, not cut back. They ALL want more everything. Government is not in business to save money, government is in business to spend money and the more the better. When has any government program gotten smaller? NEVER! At least I can't think of any.
Most government agencies know that they will not get all they ask for, so they ask for more than they need, knowing the number will be cut down. More stupidity and waste from our government.
Sometimes the Congress MAKES the pentagon buy more than they want or need.
You just can't make this stuff up.
