Gen. Montgomery C. Meigs quote
Retired Army Gen. Montgomery C. Meigs, director of the Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization, acknowledging that the easy answers to combating IEDs have already been explored (photo is of a cache of explosively formed penetrators discovered by U.S. Soldiers in Iraq).

We have all picked the low-hanging fruit in this area. If we are going to develop greater capability, it is going to require a full-court press by the scientific and technical base of our country and our allies.
