The Defense Budget

NPR's Tom Gjelten reports on President Bush's decision to stick with last year's defense budget, offered by President Clinton. Mr. Bush says his administration needs time for a thorough review of defense needs, but critics maintain that the president is breaking his campaign pledge to rebuild the U.S. military.
