and afghanistan, but certainly able to respond, and responds quickly to threats ranging from iran to smaller scale terror threats. the pentagon says that it is going to be looking toward these future threats and retooling the fighting force from the machinery on down to the boats on the ground to deal with those modern threats. but there is another sort of threat right here on capitol hill. if congress cannot come to terms on the broader budget cuts that it's been rang ling with for the last six months or so, e those cuts that were supposed to have been made by the supercommittee, another $500 billion in automatic cuts kick in. secretary of defense leo leon pantetta says the defense cannot handle that. the hope here is the men and women on capitol hill can protect the men and women in uniform by finding the cuts. >> and the story continues, thank you very mump.
