President Obama paid a visit to the Pentagon Thursday and unveiled his plans for a more streamlined military.

FOX News Radio's Mike Majchrowitz reports from the Pentagon:

Facing Republican criticism he's cutting too much from the military, the President came here to give his personal support for a new leaner defense strategy.  The President saying it can be done without declawing our forces.

Pres Obama: "We've built the best-trained, best-led, best-equipped military in history; and as Commander In Chief, I'm going to keep it that way."

Few details were given, but the President hinted at a shift of focus from Europe to Asia and cuts to many defense programs.  The Army and Marines are also expected to shrink. Buck McKeon, the Republican House Armed Services Committee Chair dismisses it as a lead from behind strategy for a left behind America.

At the Pentagon, Mike Majchrowitz, FOX News Radio.
