Panetta: “There is only one message Putin understands: force”

Leon Panetta knows the US government inside and out and has held key positions.

He was President Bill Clinton’s Chief of Staff, Director of the CIA Intelligence Agency, and Secretary of Defense under the Obama administration.

In charge of the CIA, he was responsible for overseeing the operation that led to the location and death of Osama bin Laden.

As head of the Pentagon, he had to take over the system of security alliances that the US has with countries in different parts of the world, starting with NATO, which now plays a central role in the war in Ukraine.
