Must watch investigation.

The revolving door between the Pentagon and the private sector.

The report (below) and short video, released in partnership with Brave New Foundation, reveal the extent of the Pentagon’s revolving door, in which retired high-ranking generals and admirals cash in on their years of military experience by taking lucrative jobs with the defense industry.

CREW’s investigation found 70 percent of the 108 three-and-four star generals and admirals who retired between 2009 and 2011 took jobs with defense contractors or consultants.  In at least a few cases, these retirees have continued to advise the Department of Defense — all while on the payroll of the defense industry.
