“We must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex, so that security and liberty may prosper together.”
— President Dwight D. Eisenhower, January 17, 1961
“The military-industrial complex today is much more pernicious than Eisenhower ever thought it would be.”
— Col. (Ret.) Lawrence Wilkerson, former Chief of Staff to Gen. Colin Powell
