    This is a really interesting interview.... The part I found most interesting was the exchange right off the bat..... at 1:35 of the video.

    Scott Pelley: In how many countries are we currently engaged in a shooting war?

    Panetta: Thats a good question ( laughter from panetta) I have to stop and think aboout that....

    If that alone doesnt make people shake their head about the current state of U.S. foreign policy i dont know what will, our secretary of defense cant even list all the countries we are at war with off the top of his head.

    Regardless it is a very interesting interview.

  2. I think he's being purposely vague. Good watch, very interesting.

  3. Very interesting interview. Panetta seems like a down to earth, decent guy.
