Pentagon Think Tank Moved in Org Chart Shuffle

The Office of Net Assessment, the Pentagon’s futurist think tank, will no longer report directly to the secretary of Defense, according to a new organization plan introduced by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, USA Today reports.

“The office, directed since 1973 by 92-year-old director Andrew Marshall, will now report to Under Secretary of Defense for Policy James Miller… ONA’s future had been in doubt earlier this year, as budget pressures led some inside the Pentagon to consider eliminating it. But the office has plenty of defenders in Congress and in Washington. A wide network of ONA alumni populate defense-oriented think tanks throughout Washington.”
