Pentagon is World’s Biggest Landlord (VIDEO)

"Gee, where could we cut some of the US deficit?  Pentagon?  Naaaa!  Let's cut teachers, Social Security, Medicare..."

Move over, Donald Trump and Ted Turner. The Department of Defense is the world’s top property owner with holdings around the world – a fact relevant amid election-year debate about the size and role of our military.

In the United States alone, DOD occupies 1.9 billion square feet of office space – about three times the floor space of all the nation’s Walmart stores, or 10 times the office space in all of Los Angeles. Worldwide, DOD has more than 2 million people working on 5,000 sites in 41 countries.
