The initial report MSNBC drew from was from Politico on Wednesday, titled “How women took over the military-industrial complex”:

From the executive leadership of top weapons-makers, to the senior government officials designing and purchasing the nation’s military arsenal, the United States’ national defense hierarchy is, for the first time, largely run by women.

As of Jan. 1, the CEOs of four of the nation’s five biggest defense contractors — Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin, General Dynamics and the defense arm of Boeing — are now women. And across the negotiating table, the Pentagon’s top weapons buyer and the chief overseer of the nation’s nuclear stockpile now join other women in some of the most influential national security posts, such as the nation’s top arms control negotiator and the secretary of the Air Force.

It’s a watershed for what has always been a male-dominated bastion, the culmination of decades of women entering science and engineering fields and knocking down barriers as government agencies and the private sector increasingly weigh merit over machismo.

It’s a watershed! This is purely about merit and has nothing to do with the thousands of government diversity programs rewarding contractors for hiring women and minorities!

“To me, it’s a national security issue: We need every mind, every person engaged — male, female, every race, every level of experience,” said Lynn Dugle, a former vice president at Raytheonwho is now CEO of Engility, an engineering and IT services firm that did more than $750 million of business with defense and intelligence agencies last year. “In the long term, we need to make sure talent wins.”

I couldn’t agree more!

Incidentally, have we agreed yet whether that applies to the Russians and the Chinese, which our military-industrial complex says are our sworn mortal enemies? We have open borders and let millions of citizens come in from all over the world, so I just want to be sure this “diversity and inclusion” stuff applies to them as well…

Of course, we all know that bringing in people from countries our military-industrial complex has been bombing for decades in the Middle East is an unqualified good — because Drumpf’s “Muslim ban” is pure evil — but no one has explicitly explained yet whether that also applies to people from Russia and China.

We all know our Russian “enemies” have effectively taken over the Drumpf White House and just two days ago another Chinese spy who worked for the CIA was indicted for espionage.

Former CIA officer-turned-accused Chinese spy Jerry Chun Shing Lee had an accomplice in his alleged espionage against the U.S., new court documents show.

Lee, who is accused of preparing documents in response to Chinese requests, making unexplained cash deposits and lying to the FBI, may have had help.

It would be nice to have some clarity on the issue!
