Austin was on Raytheon’s board of directors prior to his confirmation.

One response to “What the Defense Department is For

  1. Were these contracts already scripted by the Congress before Austin came to be Sec. Def.? Not that this sort of corruption doesn’t go on each and every day with corporations, especially defense contractors, bribing members of the House and Senate to vote in specific ways.
