Whoopee - Army meets reduced recruiting goal

Under the heading, who do they think they're fooling, the army announced it met its recruiting goal for the month of May. Heck those good ole boys exceeded their goal. What they don't mention is that they moved the goalposts four months ago, lowering their target until it could be reached. Too bad they couldn't do that with insurgents.

Meanwhile, their yearly goal is obviously going to fall far short of the 80,000 they need to keep things running. Of course that bad news won't hit until after the November elections. Here's hoping the electorate's memory is better than they're being given credit for by these schmucks who are trying to pull the fancy dance on them.

This is a government-defining tactic.

Back in the day, when I used to do lots of work on behalf of the Feds, I would do evaluations of computer system and report that they would not live up to their design goals. Those goals would then promptly be changed to a standard that could be met.

Yeah if they can't change the subject, they move the goalposts. Hell of a bad way to run a country.
