Gates digs in on budget cuts
from The Wall Street Journal
Secretary of Defense Robert Gates met with more than a dozen top defense-industry executives last week to deliver a message: Start delivering cost savings, or the government will do it for you. The meeting raised the stakes for a sweeping initiative launched by Gates earlier this summer to trim the fat from the $700 billion U.S. military budget. Gates aims to realize savings of $100 billion over the next five years, freeing up money to ensure troops overseas are properly equipped and supported even as military budgets flatten.
