wonder how they picked 1033?

"Benjamin Carlson at The Daily reports on a little known endeavor called the "1033 Program" that gave more than $500 million of military gear to U.S. police forces in 2011 alone."

So am I to believe the US Military just didn't need this $500 million in stuff? Or is this just perpetuating the idea that they need THE NEWEST stuff - NEED NEW CONTRACT? OR or we being HOODWINKED into believing that our congress is "supporting our troops" and the next thing you know the stuff is going to the local cops? - on purpose?
