Securing America: Military Budget Cuts
The Defense Department has been ordered to cut their budget in a big way, and the Pentagon has settled on its plan for finding nearly a half-trillion dollars in savings over the next decade.
FOX News Radio’s Jared Halpern reports from Washington in our ongoing series on national security:
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta calls it a new strategy for the military.
(Panetta) “It will be far more lethal, battle-hardened and ready.”
The 2012 budget blueprint plans for a smaller force – 70,000 fewer Army soldiers and 20,000 fewer Marines five years from now.
(Panetta) “We will have a significant land force presence in places like Korea and in the Middle East.”
But, Panetta adds, a smaller footprint in Europe. Big-ticket items, like new stealth jets, could also be delayed.
Republican lawmakers are critical. Texas Senator John Cornyn, warning the shrinking force puts the country in grave danger.
