Stick A Fork In JFCOM?

Posted: July 23, 2010 in Defense Funding, JFCOM, Office of the Secretary of Defense, OSD, USJFCOM

The Defense Business Board has recommended U.S. Joint Forces Command be done away with.

Similarly, the DBB has also targeted elements of the Office of the Secretary of Defense itself, which has an approximate head count of 5000-plus and spends about $5.5 billion per year.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out, but it’s hard to envision anything so radical as the demise of Joint Forces Command.  After all, the intellectual opposite of “not in my backyard” is “not in my district.”
