Defending Defense: Choosing Decline: The Meaning of Obama's Defense Guidance and Budget
Video
About This Event

The Defending Defense Coalition brings together the American Enterprise Institute, the Foreign Policy Initiative and the Heritage Foundation to promote a sound understanding of the U.S. defense budget and the resource requirements necessary to sustain America's preeminent military position in a dangerous world. At this event, we will discuss the Obama administration's FY 2013 defense budget and the broader context behind its new strategic guidance. As the Pentagon looks to cut $487 billion over the next decade, what capabilities and missions will America sacrifice? Does the budget reflect a strategy grounded in a true "pivot" to Asia? Is there an underlying strategic logic to the cuts? Please join us to discuss these issues.
