An Army of One (Central Planner)

So the military sends troops into Iraq without adequate body armor, such that the troops buy their own stuff, then the Army under pressure agrees to reimburse families for the possibily thousands of dollars in expenses, and now the Army bans such purchases because they aren't as good as the military issue.
