LOCKHEED MARTIN

Recommended Posts

mildly interesting reading if anybody has some time...

 

meet the new interrogators: lockheed martin

The company's reach and influence go far beyond the military. A New York Times profile of the company in 2004 opened with the sentence: "Lockheed Martin doesn't run the United States. But it does help run a breathtakingly big part of it."

 

"Over the last decade, Lockheed, the nation's largest military contractor, has built a formidable information-technology empire that now stretches from the Pentagon to the Post Office. It sorts your mail and totals your taxes. It cuts Social Security checks and counts the United States census. It runs space flights and monitors air traffic. To make all that happen, Lockheed writes more computer code than Microsoft" writes Tim Weiner.

The national security reporter for the New York Times explains how Lockheed gets its business: "Men who have worked, lobbied and lawyered for Lockheed hold the posts of secretary of the Navy, secretary of transportation, director of the national nuclear weapons complex, and director of the national spy satellite agency."

at least Microsoft (via Bill Gates) is donating part of his fortune

to good causes, like fighting third world malaria. What good do

you suppose a weapons manufacturer is doing?

lockheed totally epitomizes the huge, evil, corporation. if you look at their board,

it's all people who hold executive posts at other giant corporations and more

interestingly, some of them hold posts or own media, one of them being gannett which is apparently the largest newspaper chain in the US.

if you do some simple arithmatic, look at an example of GE owning NBC, nothing

bad gets reported by NBC about GE products or PR ever, which was a top down directive that's been corroborated. the head guy of lockheed sits on the CFR as well as international business bodies. hmm..
