The Defense Department is abandoning its plan to close several domestic military bases across the country, claiming to focus instead on closing military installations overseas, according to Secretary Leon Panetta.
“I had no illusions that [base closures] would be an easy sell politically, but we had a responsibility … to put everything on the table,” Panetta said in a speech at the annual conference of the Association of Defense Communities in Monterey, Calif. “It is now clear that there will not be a round of [closures] authorized in 2013.”
