Defense Department Comptroller Robert Hale was just asked about whether there are more program terminations in the FY-10 budget request, unveiled today, beyond those announced by Defense Secretary Robert Gates in early April.

His answer: Not that I can think of.

Hale cautioned that it's a "big budget," but neither he nor Vice Adm. Steve Stanley, Joint Staff director of force structure, resources and assessment, could come up with any more terminations.
