Will Panetta's DOD strategy be about more than just cuts?


When the current director of the CIA Leon Panetta takes over as President Obama’s next defense secretary his top priority will be cutting the defense budget -- but he should do it in a way that reshapes U.S. defense strategy, according to an analysis by Wired magazine’s Danger Room blog

The plus for contractors in the IT space is that such a shift will put more emphasis on cyber and information dominance.

Critics of outgoing Defense Secretary Robert Gates complain that his emphasis on efficiency savings doesn’t address fundamental questions about what the U.S. defense strategy should be. Strategy needs to be the driver, if budget cuts are to make sense, Spencer Ackerman writes in Danger Room.
