Where is The Cut?

U.S. enemies and power competitors must be excited with the recent sequester (which Kai Ryssdal thinks is better framed as “March Madness”) news circulating around the international media. If they don’t really get what it really means, at least they can sense the financial trouble we are in and that alone is worth the jubilation. Especially since it is no secret that the largest chunk will be cut out from the military budget.

Despite this threat or potential opportunity, depending on where you stand, the information is intentionally ambiguous that we don’t know what real impact it is going to have on the U.S. national security. Taxpayers are mostly glad that the government is finally doing something to start reducing the overdue excessive deficits but hoping that the decision makers know what and where to cut to prevent jeopardizing the essential needs for safety and security.
