The US at risk of coercion

How will the Budget Control Act impact national security? "We will no longer be immune from coercion," said Joint Chief's Chairman General Martin Dempsey, speaking at the Aspen Security Forum. Dempsey borrowed the original quote by Creighton Edwards in 1974 to illustrate concerns about how budget cuts will affect the U.S. Moving forward, Dempsey said, "if we stay on this path, we will no longer be as immune as you think we should be."

Hale: No more cuts to DoD furlough days for FY2013

Pentagon Comptroller Robert Hale told In Depth with Francis Rose Friday the Defense Department will not be cutting any more furlough days for Fiscal 2013. Now, DoD is waiting for Congress to finish marking up the president's budget request. If it fails to do that before Oct. 1, Hale said his agency may be forced to trim $52 billion from next year's budget to offset automatic cuts from the Budget Control Act.
