Full Speed Ahead for Panetta-Led Pentagon

Early reports had now-confirmed Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, a career politician who has left his CIA Director post, as a reformer being brought into the Pentagon with his experience as Office of Management and Budget Director, and an eye toward the sort of military spending cuts Robert Gates would never consider.

But Pentagon officials seem to be doing everything possible to dispell this viewpoint, insisting rather that Panetta intends to fight tooth and nail against military spending cuts, and believes that “it is a false choice between fiscal responsibility and national security.”
