After a marathon markup session, the House Armed
Services Committee on Thursday passed its version of the National
Defense Authorization Act, which includes an amendment that would
require women to register for the draft.
Defense Secretary Ash Carter has directed US Cyber
Command to make the ISIS fight the command’s first major combat
operation, and that has taken shape with “virtual isolation” around the
group as air strikes isolate fighters on the battlefield.
It’ll cost the Air Force “tens of millions” per year
out of hide to hire contractors to do F-35 maintenance through at least
2020, because the service doesn’t have enough people to do the work, Air
Force Materiel Command chief Gen. Ellen Pawlikowski said Thursday.
