In prepared remarks at Fort Bragg, Acting Defense Secretary Christopher Miller announces that Special Operations civilian leadership (assistant secretary of Defense) will now report directly to him instead of through the Pentagon bureaucracy. “This couldn’t come at a more critical moment in time as we bring our nation’s longest conflict to a responsible end and prepare our special operations forces for this new era of great power competition,” Secretary Miller Says. The change comes a day after he announced a reduction of forces in both Afghanistan and Iraq by January 15, 2021.
