They Said It: Secretary Of Defense Says Huge Debt And Deficits Are National Security Threats

- February 14, 2012

Secretary Of Defense Says Obama’s “Huge Deficits” And “Huge Debt” Are National Security Threats 

Secretary Of Defense Leon Panetta“Senator, first of all, I’m abiding by the law, the law that was passed by Congress that required reductions that we proposed. And I think, you know, just to your comment, we have tried to step up to the plate and do our duty here. I think, in weighing how you address this issue, you’ve also got to take into consideration the national security threat that comes from the huge deficits and the huge debt that we’re running. We’re running a debt now that is comparable to our GDP. At some point, the Congress and the President have to address that larger issue. What I’m doing here is basically doing my part as dictated by the Congress.” (Secretary Of Defense Leon Panetta, Armed Services Committee, U.S. Senate, Testimony, 2/14/12)
