    It’s kind of sad if you think about it – the CDI has been right so many times about weapons cost overruns and under-delivering contractors. Yet they still remain largely a fringe group in Washington’s politics, not taken seriously by most in power.

    I think it’s because fundamentally, the CDI represents what they do not want to hear.
