Info: Our guest is Winslow Wheeler, the Director of the Straus Military Reform Project at the Center for Defense Information. Mr. Wheeler studies and writes about the military, its costs, and its programs. He recently wrote two of the ten essays in “The Pentagon Labyrinth: 10 Short Essays to Help You Through It.” Winslow Wheeler has worked on the staffs of Senators Javits, Kassebaum, Pryor, and Domenici. His 2002 article entitled, “Mr. Smith is Dead: No One Stands in the Way as Congress Lards Post-September 11 Defense Bills with Pork,” led to him leaving his position on the staff of the Senate Budget Committee. He is the author of the book, “The Wastrels of Defense: How Congress Sabotages U.S. Security.”
