Defense spending is one of the few expenditures the Constitution supports. Why focus on these costs when the real spending problems are the extra-constitutional outlays. Those are where REAL cuts need to be made. Sure, the estimates were published before the 9/11/01 attacks but also after 8 years of Clinton using defense as the "peace dividend" and cutting it to create his "surplus".
