Military Photographer of the Year
When Matthew Brady traveled around Civil War battlefields, he changed the expectations of military leaders and the public about what they could expect to see of military life and operations. Today, the Defense Department has thousands of photographers documenting everything from firefights in Afghanistan to press conferences at the Pentagon. Tom and Emily spoke with one of the best today. Master Sgt. Jeremy Lock of the Air Force was named the 2012 Military Photographer of the Year. It's his seventh time winning the award.
Communicators of Excellence
The 2012 Military Photographer of the Year Award is part of a larger awards program that honors excellence among military photographers, videographers, journalists and graphic artists. The awards are given out by the Defense Information School. Tom and Emily spoke with Rob Hood, a judge for this year's awards program.
Center for Strategic and International Studies
Three whistleblowers go before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee today to discuss the attacks on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya. They'll discuss whether the U.S. government could have done more to prevent the deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans killed the same night. They'll also likely question an independent review that blamed the State Department for security failures but did not point a finger at any one person. Anthony Cordesman, a defense analyst for the Center for Strategic and International Studies, previewed the hearing with Tom and Emily.
The Hill newspaper
For the first time, the Pentagon has directly accused the Chinese government of cyber attacks on the U.S. In a new report, Defense officials say China is looking for intelligence it can use to build its own military technologies. Jennifer Martinez, a staff writer for The Hill newspaper, spoke with Tom and Emily about the details of the report.

From Our Reporters
Agencies soon will be told to change the way they certify and accredit their computer systems. The Office of Management and Budget is drafting a memo to move agencies out of the once every three-year process under the Federal Information Security Management Act. Federal News Radio's Jason Miller provides details on this new ongoing authorization process.
