Oliver North's Column: Obama's Defense Budget - New Strategic Guidence Is Strategic Capitulation
In his latest column, retired Marine Lt Colonel Oliver North raps Obama's proposed Defense Department budget.
Washington, DC – The U.S. military better get ready to do a whole lot more with a whole lot less. That’s the bottom line of the so-called “new strategic guidance” issued this week by Mr. Obama during a brief visit to the Pentagon.
Flanked by Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and every member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Mr. Obama proudly proclaimed to allies and adversaries alike that the United States is heading toward a much less expensive, far smaller, and ultimately less capable military than we’ve had since before .
...He claims it is now a “national security imperative” to reduce our federal deficit “through a lower level of defense spending.”
That’s a “strategy” driven by dollars – not the threats and risks we face.
