    "Air Force officials say the government needs the new capsules to ensure that leaders can talk, work and rest comfortably in the air. But the top brass's preoccupation with creating new luxury in wartime has alienated lower-ranking Air Force officers familiar with the effort, as well as congressional staff members and a nonprofit group that calls the program a waste of money."

    I think it's a big deal! My biggest pet peave when I was in the Army was golf courses. Why does a military post/base need a Golf Course? These capsules are no different. The Airforce should spend money on drones and airlifting troops and supplies and these "Comfort Capsules" fall into the realm of golf courses. Those Airforce Generals ought to spartan up.
