Ashton Carter confirmed by Senate as US defense secretary | 12 Feb 2015 | Ashton Carter was confirmed as secretary of defense on Thursday after the Senate delivered more than 90 votes to approve him, putting the Pentagon veteran in charge of the US military at a time of violent crises in eastern Europe and the Middle East. Carter, a former deputy secretary of defense who is well-liked by many in congressional circles, was perfunctorily confirmed 93-5 to succeed the outgoing secretary, Chuck Hagel. During his wide-ranging confirmation hearing, Carter…sometimes gave answers that the Republicans on the committee were glad to hear. He also repeatedly called the US “the indispensable nation”, a phrase used by critics of the administration to press for greater military engagement around the world. [Is that even possible? The US pig snout is just about *everywhere.*]
