Our Work - National SecurityTweet
POGO’s investigations draw attention to cases where our national security and needs of the troops have been compromised by greed, lack of oversight, and in many cases, sheer incompetence. Our nation’s security should never take a back seat to private or bureaucratic interests that result in malfunctioning or under-performing weapons systems, or insufficiently secured military, diplomatic, or nuclear weapons facilities. Yet that is what often happens. Through these investigations, POGO seeks to support the needs of the troops and improve the allocation of taxpayer dollars and resources in order to make the U.S. more safe and secure.
