Loaded dice

From the Crikey email, an "anonymous insider" writes on the Australian Army's faulty equipment;

In the event, only one manufacturer was able to comply with the specifications. Combat Clothing spent nearly $8 million on this jacket. Interestingly, shortly after the contract was awarded, the technical officer who liaised directly with the various manufacturers resigned from Defence and began working for the company that won the contract.

Nice work if you can get it.
