 Military-Industrial Complex Revisited: New Military Mega-Companies
In recent years, Lockheed Martin and its allies in the weapons industry have aggressively pushed for favorable treatment from the federal government in the form of special subsidies, lucrative contracts for big-ticket weapons systems, and wholesale changes in U.S. policies on arms sales and military technology transfers.
First, at a meeting that Lockheed Martin’s Norman Augustine refers to as the "last supper," Perry bluntly told industry executives that the Pentagon would not be ordering enough ships, planes, and tanks to support the number of major military contractors that had been sustained by the Reagan military buildup of the 1980s.
One way that firms like Lockheed Martin and Boeing fatten their bottom lines at the expense of our long-term security is by using their connections on Capitol Hill to force the Pentagon to buy weapons that weren’t included in the department’s original budget request.

Lockheed Martin Corp. abandoned its $2.2 billion deal to acquire Titan Corp. yesterday after the San Diego-based company failed to resolve a federal bribery investigation, ending a nearly year-long courtship plagued by controversy.
Bethesda-based Lockheed gave Titan until Friday to reach a plea agreement with the Justice Department, which is investigating whether Titan consultants bribed officials in Saudi Arabia and Benin, an African nation, to win contracts, including some for communications equipment.
But Lockheed did not want to inherit legal responsibility for a violation of the Foreign Corrupt Practice Act, which prohibits U.S. companies or their agents from bribing foreign officials to win business, particularly because bribery has been an issue for the company before.
