Booz Allen, the World's Most Profitable Spy Organization How this week's cover got madeIn 1940, a year before the attack on Pearl Harbor, the U.S. Navy began to think about what a war with Germany would look like.

The firm had effectively invented management consulting, deploying whiz kids from top schools as analysts and acumen-for-hire to corporate clients. Working with the Navy’s own planners, Booz consultants developed a special sensor system that could track the U-boats’ brief-burst radio communications and helped design an attack strategy around it.

U.S. Military Spending Dwarfs Rest of World The Pentagon is putting tens of thousands of soldiers, the A-10 and U-2 aircraft, and billions of dollars on the chopping block in the budget proposal outlined by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel this week. But while the focus is on cuts right now, analysts say it's investment and innovation that will get the military into fighting shape for a high-tech future. What weapons and programs can best ensure U.S. security in a changing world?

Security Studies Program (SSP) A Defense Concept for Ukraine This paper was written by Professor Barry R. Posen twenty years ago. It was never published in English. Though the order of battle assumptions are no longer accurate, the basic architecture of the military problem remains. Those following events in Ukraine may find the analysis useful. Chris Rodda: Hey General Petraeus, How's That 'Spiritual Fitness' Stuff Working For You? I hate hypocrites. And the first word that came to mind when I heard about David Petraeus's extramarital affair was "hypocrite." One of the big issues we've been dealing with for several years at the Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) is the military's push to make our troops "spiritually fit." There's the mandatory Army-wide "Spiritual Fitness" test, spiritual fitness concerts, spiritual fitness centers, and lots of other spiritual fitness events and programs to keep our military "spiritual."

(For those who are new to Muckety maps, any box with a + sign can be expanded by double-clicking.) Today we learn of the involvement of Gen. John Allen, NATO commander in Afghanistan. The New York Times reports that Allen is under investigation for “inappropriate communication” with Jill Kelley, the Tampa woman who initiated an FBI investigation by reporting harassing email.
