for American Progress states in a new report that massive cuts to the Pentagon's
budget are doable, but should not occur through sequestration. "The amount of
cuts to the Pentagon budget mandated by both parts of the debt deal is readily
achievable with no sacrifice to our security -- if the cuts are done in a
thoughtful manner over the next decade," center writes in the Oct. 31 report.
"We also agree that some of those savings in the U.S. defense budget should be
redeployed to other parts of the federal government, specifically to those
non-military programs that help our nation defend the homeland and prevent
global crises from escalating into military confrontations."
