The Pentagon is delivering the bad news to its employees: Of the 800,000 civilians who work for the Department of Defense, an estimated 700,000 would be furloughed for one day a week if the sequestration cuts occur.

Things that won’t be cut:

  • The official wars the U.S. is fighting
  • The secrets wars the U.S. is fighting
  • Secret holding facilities for “terrorists”
  • Drone bombing
  • Unnecessary weapons, such as Abrams MI Tanks.
