The US Air Force sought money from counter-terrorism funds to install luxurious rooms on military aircraft for travelling top brass and officials, the Washington Post reported Friday.
Several senior generals weighed in on design details of the "comfort capsules," which include leather chairs, a 37-inch (94 centimetre) flat screen monitor, a bed, table, couch and full-length mirror, the Post wrote, citing budget documents and government e-mails.
The plan has angered lower-ranking Air Force officers and lawmakers' aides who say the project is a waste of money and inappropriate in a time of war.
The Air Force over the past three years has requested 16.2 million dollars to be diverted from the "war on terror" to fund the project, according to the article.
