Presented by John Roberts
Every hour of the day, 365 days a year, the Pentagon spends
28 million dollars on America's defence. But much of it is being wasted: on ashtrays that cost
660 dollars, coffee pots that cost 7,600 dollars - and on weapons that don't even shoot straight.
Over the Reagan years the Pentagon has been getting fewer bangs for its bucks, while critics say the American taxpayer is being fleeced. But how did it happen and what lessons are there for Britain?
