From Monday’s Special Report All-Star Panel Appearance
On President Obama’s remarks following news of the Supercommittee’s failure to reach an agreement:
I think it’s quite remarkable what we just heard from the president. His own secretary of defense had said last week in testimony that if the sequester on defense goes in effect, it will have a devastating effect on the military, and essentially, endanger the security of the United States.
Here is the president a week later [saying] he will insist on the sequester, the automatic cut in defense, unless he gets his way.
