Mark Thompson has experienced a long and interesting career covering the Pentagon. He has seen six different administrations and 14 Secretaries of Defense. Through all of this, he has noted many trends common to all. He brings this experience to the Center for Defense Information to provide his perspective in his weekly column “Military Industrial Circus.” He recently related a few of his favorite anecdotes to CDI’s Dan Grazier.
