  • Pentagon says White House to release budget April 8
    The Obama administration will release the 2014 budget about two months later than required by law, according to members of Congress who say they were briefed by Pentagon officials. The budget is said to be coming April 8, although the White House hasn't confirmed that date. Congressional Republicans criticized the delay, saying it causes unnecessary uncertainty among military leaders. The Hill/DEFCON Hill blog (3/8) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
  • Dramatic sequester warnings generate questions
    Some members of Congress are questioning whether military officers "hyped" the effects of sequestration, issuing dramatic warnings that were more dire than was necessary, and making statements better left to civilian leadership. Military officials counter that their warnings about sequestration were real. "Look, military leaders don't make decisions to make a point," Navy Rear Adm. John Kirby wrote in an op-ed piece. "We don't do drama. And we don't involve ourselves in political debates." Defense News (3/10) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

  • NASA powers down Curiosity to withstand solar strike
    The sun has sent a solar blast scorching through space to Mars, but the rover Curiosity is sleeping through the whole thing. NASA powered down the rover to be on the safe side while Mars experienced a surge in radiation from the solar burst. Such flares have damaged Mars exploration equipment in the past, but NASA doesn't expect the same thing to happen to Curiosity.

  • Urgent call to action – write Congress and the White House to repeal sequestration
    Because of the White House's and Congress' inability to reach a deal to reverse sequestration, the initial round of multibillion cuts to defense and non-defense federal agencies has begun. Although these cuts are now being implemented, it is not too late to repeal this bad policy and develop a balanced, bi-partisan solution to our nation's debt and deficit problem. Now is the time to reach out to your elected officials to communicate the urgent need to repeal sequestration. Go to the Second to None website to send a letter to your elected officials in Washington today. LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
