Bronco Buzz: Somebody's Gotta Do It
Wednesday, Jun. 29, 2011
At least Republicans and Democrats can agree on one thing: Leon Panetta ’60, J.D. ’63 is awesome. Last Tuesday, the senate unanimously confirmed Panetta as the new secretary of defense, replacing the retiring Robert Gates.
Most recently Panetta served as the Director of the CIA. A position he took in January 2009 and which culminated with the killing of Osama Bin Laden in May.
Added July 6: Further back in our archives: read Farid Senzai's 2007 interview with Panetta following up on his work with the Iraq Study Group.
