Gordon Adams, Distinguished Fellow, Stimson Center

Gordon Adams, distinguished fellow at the Stimson Center and a professor of international relations at American University, writes about the deal in Foreign Policy magazine. He tells In Depth with Francis Rose that the defense spending deal and the OCO budget is more of a "shell game" that Congress can tap into to buy what it wants.
