1. When people talk about "running government like a business," they pretty much mean shoveling money to contractors.

2. All talk of "running government like a business" stops when it comes to raises or bonuses for public sector employees.

3. People talk about how government contracting involves too much red tape. We should remember that this waste occurred because much of the procurement effort in Iraq bypassed all the red tape.
