NPR's Tom Gjelten reports on the Pentagon's Quadrennial Defense Review. Every four years, senior military officers try to decide how big the military should be, and what it needs to defend the country. The latest review, which will be delivered to Congress in the next few days, was almost complete before Sept. 11. Some critics say it's now obsolete.
