Iranian claims discounted

The Pentagon is disputing reports that Iranian ships docked at a Syrian port over the weekend. According to the Associated Press, Iranian state-run Press TV said Saturday that an Iranian navy destroyer and a supply ship had docked in the port of Tartus to provide training to ally Syria's naval forces, as Syria tries to crush the opposition movement. But Defense Department press secretary George Little said Tuesday the U.S. military saw no indication that the ships docked or delivered any cargo. Little said Tehran's ships went through the Suez Canal and now appear to be going back through the canal again.

Cyber spending to remain steady

Spending on cyber security and special operations forces, will probably remain steady or decline a bit in 2013 under the Pentagon's budget plan. The Associated Press is reporting, defense leaders have insisted that increased investments in these areas were needed to address future national security threats at home and abroad. They said last year that cyber spending would likely increase in 2013 because the threat is escalating at a dramatic rate. But demands to slash the military budget have made it difficult to boost spending. So defense officials are finding savings while still meeting the nation's war fighting needs.
