Carter: Politics, economy to affect DoD spending
Tuesday - 11/9/2010, 4:35pm EST
This was the first time Carter had publicly acknowledged that political and economic realities might impact actual funding.
Carter also met separately with industry and defense officials to say he's still hopeful cuts in overhead might preserve a projected 1 percent real growth in the overall defense budget over the next five years.
Some industry officials have been increasingly skeptical that the Pentagon can keep that promise. There are also concerns over cuts or cancellations to several big contracts.
A lot of the big DoD suppliers have been working closely with the military in its cost-cutting drive because they hope it will preserve funding for new weapons programs.
