GAO Releases Study About a Study on Studies

Voltaire once wrote that “I have only ever addressed one prayer to God, and it is very short: ‘My God, please make all our enemies ridiculous.’ God has granted my wish.” As with Voltaire, so with classical liberals.

The Pentagon — the same agency that has an official 26-page brownie recipe — recently released a study about studies. Now GAO has produced its own study about that study about studies. Yahoo’s Alyssa Newcomb explains:

The study of a study of studies began in 2010 when Defense Secretary Robert Gates complained that his department was “awash in taskings for reports and studies.” He wanted to know how much they cost.

Two years later, the Pentagon review is still continuing, which prompted Congress to ask the GAO to look over the Pentagon’s shoulder. What they found lacked military precision.

It goes downhill from there.
