Ready, fire, aim The Army failed to conduct due diligence in its green ammo program.
Editorial Cape Cod Times (MA) December 20, 2006
First of two parts.
In 2001, officials from nearly a dozen Department of Defense programs accepted former Vice President Al Gore's "golden hammer" award for developing the tungsten-nylon bullet, which was heralded by Army brass as a nonpolluting alternative to lead bullets.
Each official received a hammer wrapped in a red, white and blue ribbon and a plaque that read, "Thanks for building a government that works better and costs less."
They should return the hammers.
The inspector general of the Department of Defense should immediately begin a formal investigation into the Army's mishandling of its green ammunition program.
