Isn't that the GOP mantra, outsource gov't jobs to private industry so that our tax dollars go from the treasury to their pockets.<quoted text>
It is sad how they focus on non issues like Obama's Birth Certificate and how the Clinton's murdered Vince Foster back in the 1990s.

Gen. Michael Hayden is leading the National Security Agency's effort to unscramble a management and technology puzzle born of decades of secrecy. Beginning in November, hundreds of National Security Agency technology specialists will walk out the doors of the super-secret Puzzle Palace in Fort Meade, Md., ending their careers as federal workers. But nearly all will return the next day to do the same jobs they did before, as contractors under the largest outsourcing ever conducted by an intelligence agency. The agency announced in July that a team of contractors, led by Computer Sciences Corp. of El Segundo, Calif., and Logicon, a Northrop Grumman subsidiary in Herndon, Va., would take over the management and support of the agency's nonmission-critical computers, networks and telephone systems. One of the largest IT outsourcing pacts in government-it's worth at least $2 billion and as much as $5 billion-NSA's Project Groundbreaker contract reflects a growing recognition by agencies that private companies can provide better IT support at lower prices than federal workers can.

BTW did you notice the date, 10 days before 9/11. Guess outsourcing really works.
I suspect that there is a covert effort on the part of the GOP hierarchy to have our public school system fail, so that they can champion school vouchers. We can also look at what a great job Haliburton did in Iraq, supplying the troops and rebuilding the infrastructure. Where did all those billions go? Same for our prison system. Which BTW we have more people behind bars than China even though they have 4X as many people
