Yesterday, the Senate Armed Services Committee, under the leadership of committee Chairman Senator John McCain (R-AZ) released its much anticipated defense white paper, Restoring American Power. The white paper makes a powerful case for a significant and sustained increase in defense spending, one which would require elimination of the Budget Control Act’s limits on defense budgets. The paper provides a clear-eyed description of the growing number and quality of threats facing this country as well as an assessment of secular decline in the size and capabilities of the U.S. military. I have written about the white paper here.
