Bryan Clark, Senior Fellow, Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments

Congress is hollowing out the Defense Department and turning the nation's military into a paper tiger of global proportions. That's according to Bryan Clark, a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments and a former special assistant to the Chief of Naval Operations. He joined In Depth with Francis Rose for Pentagon Solutions today. He and his colleague Todd Harrison write about the Defense Department's fiscal 2015 budget process on Capitol Hill and how it forces the Pentagon to ignore its own budgetary wisdom.

Analysis: Pay, benefits, O&M will swallow entire DoD budget by 2024

DoD in denial about budget future, experts say

Defense budget watchers say despite abundant evidence to the contrary, the Pentagon appears to believe it will eventually get most of its funding wishes over the coming few years. "Whether [sequestration] stays in place for nine more years is an open question, but it's certainly going to be in place for the foreseeable future," said Mackenzie Eaglen, a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute.
