Rudy deLeon, Center for American Progress, Danielle Pletka, AEI

Rep. Randy Forbes (R-Va.) is looking for collaboration from the think tank community. He told Federal News Radio back in January that his House Armed Services Subcommittee on Seapower and Projection Forces wants more input from groups of think tanks working together on issues of national defense and national security. At least one effort is delivering on Chairman Forbes's wish -- and was -- before he even expressed that wish. Danielle Pletka is senior vice president for foreign and defense policy studies at the American Enterprise Institute. Rudy deLeon is senior fellow at the Center for American Progress and former Deputy Secretary of Defense. Danielle tells In Depth with guest host Jared Serbu why their effort isn't just a collaboration between AEI and CAP.
