A reprint of the article "Will Panetta Help the State Department?" by Miriam Pemberton, which appeared in "Defense News," is presented. According to Pemberton, U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta has yet to show signs that he will not protect his own department's budget at the expense of nonmilitary security agencies. She states that his predecessor, Robert Gates, was a supporter of providing the U.S. State Department with more money, but had allegedly failed to put his words into action.
