Wow. All I can say is: wow. I'll even say it backwards: wow. This video was apparently picked up by a number of conspiracy sites and is currently circulating in paranoia emails. I want to scream at these wackos: Have you not heard of the annual government rite known as fallout spending? Or the threatened "government shutdown"? The reason for the delivery and exercise/training/report completion date of Oct 1 has NOTHING TO DO WITH AN EXPECTED PROBLEM and everything to do with getting it all paid for out of THIS YEAR'S fiscal budget for two reasons: 1) Next year's fiscal budget automatically gets reduced by the amount of any unspent funds from the current fiscal year ("you didn't spend that last year so you must not need it this year") and 2) All training and purchasing of supplies is halted during a "government shutdown" until a spending agreement is reached. I refuse to call it a budget agreement as that implies trying to work within the bounds of expected income. Plus they may get their budgets slashed to the bone next fiscal year anyway. So they are trying to get everything they want for a while paid for before Oct 1. Sheesh. The craziness of it all.
