Business Insider: Biden wants the military's footprint to be 'correctly sized,' and it may mean deciding which bases really matter
* The Biden administration has started a review of the US military's global force posture. * The review comes amid increasing calls for a reduction of US military bases overseas. * Many would welcome fewer bases, but critics say a change in strategy is also needed.
The Biden administration in February launched a review of the US military's global presence to ensure it "is correctly sized and supports strategy."
That review, set to finish by mid-year, comes as the administration balances ongoing military obligations with its focus on China as "the pacing challenge."
The result may be a reduction of the sprawling network of US bases overseas, which activists, lawmakers, and even the US's top military officer say is warranted.
