Defense Secretary Robert Gates recently recommended that some expensive defense procurement projects be canceled, most notably the Air Force F-22 fighter aircraft and parts of the the Army Future Combat Systems.  The savings would be put into other programs related to special operations and counterinsurgency, which the Obama administration believes are more appropriate ways to deal with the kinds of national security threats the US will face in the forseable future.  Naturally, some current and former officials oppose the elimination of the aforementioned weapons programs.
