Reminder: Libya intervention comes at a cost
March 22, 2011 by IPB
From a Fox News blog, of all places:
“GOP leaders have trumpeted enacted spending reductions that amount to more than $285 million per day since the beginning of March.
“But defense analysts say the Pentagon could be burning through more than $100 million per day in Libya, putting those budget savings at risk.
“In separate briefings on Monday, the Defense Department and the White House said they do not yet have a projected price tag for the military action that began on Saturday. Defense officials said they are still ‘collecting’ and analyzing early costs.”
