***CANCELLATION*** The Impact of Sequestration on American Interests in Asia


The Obama Administration’s defense strategy and its “Asia Pivot” are undercut by the fact that the U.S. military lacks the resources necessary to implement such strategies. Even as the number of threats to global peace and stability continues to multiply, there has not been a commensurate increase of U.S. capabilities. To what degree will massive defense cuts and reductions in the overall U.S. military structure constrain America’s global power projection and force sustainability capabilities? Join us as Representative McKeon and our panelists address these issues as well as the dangers for American security interests posed by the looming train wreck of sequestration.
