Lighter, faster, cheaper?

From Stars & Stripes:

One serving officer, who asked not to be identified, said Rumsfeld “didn’t even let us go to war with the Army we had; he made us leave half our armored vehicles at home in pursuit of lighter, faster and cheaper.”

Apparantly, we had a lot of Bradleys and similar APCs, and never deployed them. That’s almost forgiveable in the initial invasion, but c’mon – it’s only happening NOW, 19 months later? How about in the first month or two…?

Oh, and that quote was the last paragraph of the article. Can we say “burying the lead” boys and girls?
