Sharon Burke, New America Foundation

The Pentagon says it's making a $9 billion investment over the next five years to minimize how much diesel and jet fuel it needs for combat operations. But DoD's consumption is still expected to rise over the next half decade because of new energy hungry technologies like the F-35 and Littoral Combat Ship. Sharon Burke, senior fellow for the International Security Program at New America Foundation, is also former assistant secretary of Defense for Operational Energy Plans and Programs. In a recent article for Foreign Affairs, she argues DoD's energy appetite isn't just a budget concern. She said on In Depth with Jared Serbu it's increasingly going to challenge the military's ability to perform its missions.
