Budget cuts concern DOD leaders

The U.S. doesn’t have to chose between fiscal discipline and national security. The words of Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta. In his first news conference since taking office looming budget cuts were his focus. He was joined by outgoing chairman of the joint Chiefs Admiral Mike Mullen. Mullen warned that programs that can’t meet costs or target dates are in jeopardy of being cut. Both assured military personnel they have their best interest at heart.
