Pentagon considering major COCOM overhaul

The Pentagon is considering an overhaul of its geographical combatant commands which could do away with thousands of military and civilian positions, according to Federal Times.

These consolidation plans are a result of the sequester, which is forcing the Pentagon to look for ways to accelerate spending cuts, Federal Times reported.

“Combining combatant commands is certainly not something that we want to do, but something that we have to consider because all cuts have to be on the table,” Federal Times quoted a defense official as saying.
