"'More mine detectors, and more Marines, sir,' a Marine sergeant in sunglasses told Ashton B. Carter, the Pentagon’s chief arms and equipment buyer, as a punishing wind whipped Carter’s shirt during a review of troop needs in Afghanistan. 'They’re on their way,' promised Carter, a former Harvard professor and prominent defense analyst whose visit last year was captured on videotape. Saying yes to spending and personnel requests is about to get a lot harder for Carter, if the Senate confirms him as expected this fall as deputy secretary of defense." (08/27/11)
