Obama Nominee for Director of Weapons Procurement Is Goldman Sachs Consultant

President Barack Obama recently nominated Ashton Carter to be the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics. This is the top weapons purchasing position.

In addition to other roles, his bio lists him as a consultant to Goldman, Sachs. Imagine my surprise.

Carter is also a member of the Aspen Strategy Group, the Council on Foreign Relations, the International Institute of Strategic Studies, and the National Committee on U.S., China Relations.
