What’s in store for Pentagon?

U.S. Defense secretary Robert Gates has announced sweeping changes in the Pentagon budget. But Lawrence Korb, a senior military analyst from the Center for American Progress, says Gates has only rebalanced the budget.

The United States government wants to stop building super-expensive F-22 jets, pull the plug on new presidential helicopters, and refocus on the two wars the U.S. is fighting. Lawrence Korb explains what the future holds for the Pentagon.
