Kind Says He Warned Of Defense Spending Changes
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel proposed a defense budget this week designed to
turn the military's attention away from the long ground war in Afghanistan and toward emerging cyberthreats from China and increasing challenges from al Qaeda-affiliated groups in Africa. More cuts are coming as well and Congressman Ron Kind warned last year, that changes were coming.
The Pentagon road map, sure to face fierce resistance from lawmakers in both parties, calls for reducing the military's reliance on manpower heavy troop buildups, investing instead in more agile special forces and cyberwarriors.
