I've been following this fantastic investigative series on the business of National Security being published by the Washington Post this week. They have published 3 stories so far and have put together a web site with supporting information and media. Lots of food for thought, at many different levels.
For a short synopsis of the work listen to NPR's Kai Rysdall interview with the author of the articles, Dana Priest, on Marketplace.
