Ever feel like you missed the beginning of an important news story? Leonard will catch you up during Backstory.
We’ll examine President Obama’s proposed 2012 defense budget with Winslow Wheeler, Director of the Straus Military Reform Project at the Center for Defense Information.
The book mentioned in the show and linked to above - is awesome.
I heard this program this PM, and then found it on line for my wife to hear. Winslow was wonderfully informative about the military budget. Two question?. If all reasonable military savings were in the current budget, what would that do to our deficit?
Is it likely that there will be effective cuts in military spending?
I think this guest and topic merit more time... any chance to do another segment. The pentagon refusing to submit to audit would be a good place to start.
