Today on DoDLive Bloggers Roundtable we spoke with Dr. Michael Nacht, Assistant Secretary of Defense for Global Strategic Affairs, and Deputy Under Secretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks. They discussed the recently released Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR) and Ballistic Missile Defense Review (BMDR)

The QDR examines Department of Defense strategies and priorities and the BMDR articulates the ballistic missile threat to the United States and its allies and evaluates U.S. ballistic missile defense policy. The Secretary of Defense Robert M. Gates will issue the final reports of these defense reviews along with President Obama’s FY11 defense budget request on Feb. 1.
