Defending DefensePosted by Randy | February 22, 2012
Over the past several months, I have discussed how the Administration’s defense strategy is not a strategy for a superpower. It’s a menu for mediocrity. Rather than building a military that is lean, agile, and flexible, the Administration has proposed slashing nearly $500 billion in defense spending that risks weakening the pillars of America: trade, jobs, diplomacy, global trust, innovation, and the American way of life.
Last week, I had the opportunity to discuss these issues at a "Defending Defense" Conference on Capitol Hill. Defending Defense is a coalition between the Foreign Policy Initiative (FPI), the American Enterprise Institute (AIE), and the Heritage Foundation to promote a sound understanding of the U.S. defense budget and the resource requirements necessary to sustain America’s preeminent military position in a dangerous world.
