Congress has consistently passed the buck and now, instead of taking responsibility themselves, cuts across the board are threatened. Some, like Defense Secreatary Gates, have blamed entitilements, others, like today’s guest cites out of control spending at the Pentagon. Dr. Gordon Adams is professor of International Relations at American Univerity where he teaches national security policy and resource planning. He was a member of the OMB Agency transition team for Obama in 2009 and regularly meets with Pentagon decision makers. Adams argues that cuts, not just in the level of growth, but real cuts can be made without harming our national security. And this year, it may even be politically possible.
