The 2016 budget proposal will also be out then, so the hearings will likely cover wider ground. So will it be smooth sailing for President Barack Obama's nominee, or a bumpy road?

Nora Bensahel, Senior Fellow, Center for a New American Security

The release of the National Defense Panel's analysis of the Quadrennial Defense Review is just a few weeks away. That panel is Congress' independent review board for the QDR. Nora Bensahel is senior fellow and co-director of the Responsible Defense Program at the Center for a New American Security. She was a guest for Pentagon Solutions on In Depth with Francis Rose. Her latest work is titled "Beyond the QDR: Key Issues Facing the National Defense Panel." She says the QDR doesn't break much new ground, and that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Beef jerky, reality shows, beer: Coburn tells DoD to cut it all out

A new report, called the Department of Everything, says DoD spending over the next 10 years will total almost $68 billion on non- military goods and services. Some recent examples include a smartphone app to help military members manage their caffeine intake and the sponsorship of a workshop by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency called the 100 Year Starship project, which included a session called, "Did Jesus die for Klingons too?"
