Obama, Panetta to Release New Defense Strategy Today

President Barrack Obama will join Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta this morning in announcing a new defense strategy that responds to the need to reduce defense budgets.

A news conference at the Pentagon is scheduled for 10:50 am EST this morning.    Joining the President and Panetta will be Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, and Deputy Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter.  The press conference will be carried live on DOD’s website and presumably on major media outlets.

Today’s announcement of the results of the Defense Strategic Review is expected to provide a broad overview, not specifics.  The latter reportedly will come when the FY2013 budget request is released next month.
