Panetta warns of retreat in Africa due to budget cuts

• Washington Times

Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta on Thursday warned Congress that automatic cuts in defense spending would force the Pentagon to reduce its presence in some trouble spots, including Africa, a hotbed of al Qaeda franchise groups.

Mr. Panetta previously raised the specter of a dysfunctional, “hollow” U.S. military if automatic budget reductions force the Pentagon to squeeze out $1 trillion in spending over 10 years.
