An independent panel appointed by the Pentagon and Congress said Thursday that President Obama’s strategy for sizing the armed services leaves the military too weak for today’s global threats.
The National Defense Panel called on the president to dump a major section of his 2014 Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR) and write a broader strategy that requires the military to fight on multiple fronts at once.
Barack Obama appointed Chuck Hagel (pictured) to head the Department of Defense for two reasons:
1. Hagel is a ‘follower’ and would do anything Obama asked without question.
2. Hagel is a former indistingushed Republican Senator from Nebraska and would be a perfect scapegoat for any criticisms directed at the military.
