Panel Calls for Discussion on U.S. Military Plans

Medill News Service reports that “a prestigious defense review panel has warned that the U.S. government must “sound an alarm” to build public support among the American people for increased defense spending.”  

“’We saw a train wreck coming when we looked at the growth of the threats around the world,’ said panel member Eric Edelman, a former ambassador to Turkey and Finland and a former undersecretary of defense for policy.”  

“’There’s this huge disconnect between where we see the world going with the U.S. military and what our policy is,’ said panelist Michele Flournoy, another former undersecretary of defense for policy.”
