Hour Three

Friday  6 December  2013 / Hour 3, Block A: 11:00  Michael Vlahos, professor in the Strategy and Policy Department at the U.S. Naval War College

Strategies abound at the Defense Department.  The 2010 Quadrennial Defense Review is in place; the 2014 QDR is in process; and as many as a half-dozen others exist.  The question becomes, does the Pentagon have strategies...or “a” strategy?

Friday  6 December  2013 / Hour 3, Block B:  11:15  Michael Vlahos continues.

Friday  6 December  2013 / Hour 3, Block C:  11:30 Christopher Bergin, President and Publisher at Tax Analysts.  The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is not the only entity asking the Internal Revenue Service for documents about the Exempt Organizations division.  Tax Analysts has been asking the IRS for training materials - and hitting the same brick wall as the Oversight Committee.

Friday  6 December  2013 / Hour 3, Block D:  11:45  Gordon Lubold, Foreign Policy  A Chinese PLA officer asks for training manuals...at an American military base.  The forcefulness of his request has started an investigation inside the Army.
