Nora Bensahel, Senior Fellow, Center for a New American Security

The release of the National Defense Panel’s analysis of the Quadrennial Defense Review is just a few weeks away. That panel is Congress’ independent review board for the QDR. Nora Bensahel is senior fellow and co-director of the Responsible Defense Program at the Center for a New American Security. She was a guest for Pentagon Solutions on In Depth with Francis Rose. Her latest work is titled “Beyond the QDR: Key Issues Facing the National Defense Panel.” She says the QDR doesn’t break much new ground, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
