Beyond Labels

A 360° Discussion of Foreign, National and Local Policy Issues

Today: “Civilian Control of the Military”

As a follow-up to our discussion a couple of weeks ago about what President-elect Biden’s cabinet picks say about his upcoming Administration, we’ll focus in on the Secretary of Defense nominee and some people’s expressed concerns about how recently he retired from the Navy.

The discussion will be centered around this Op-Ed piece by Dennis Blair, former DNI and a Navy man himself. In the attached PDF, I attached both Blair’s commentary and some of the comments in response.

If you haven’t re-joined the Beyond Labels discussion (for now, via Zoom), you can register on the Blue Hill Public Library’s events calendar to get the Zoom link. We meet from 10:00am to noon every Monday.
