Jared Serbu, DoD Reporter, Federal News Radio

The Pentagon's been warning for years that the decade-long budget caps Congress set in place four years ago won't work. At least if DoD hopes to execute the defense strategy on the books right now.

Federal News Radio's Jared Serbu joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to discuss DoD's sequestration messaging strategy as part of this week's edition of Inside the Reporter's Notebook.
