The Week That Was: August 3-7 August 8, 2009

Posted by Stephen Abott in Briefing.

Dr. Gordon Adams was quoted in Defense News about the upcoming QDR and possible program cuts it could bring. Diplomacy and development is receiving new attention with the upcoming Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review (QDDR), possible rewrite of the Foreign Assistance Act (FAA), and higher funding levels. Budget Insight also examined the problems still facing Provincial Reconstruction Teams (PRTs) and the need for the forthcoming report on Afghanistan strategy to include a close focus on making them a stronger instrument of American policy.

Congress will be in recess next week, but Budget Insight will continue to track and report on developments in foreign affairs and defense budgets.
