Policy Reorganization Under the Scope:

Senate defense authorizers frustrated with a lack of information about the planned reorganization of the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy want the Government Accountability Office to conduct an assessment. Roxana Tiron of The Hill reports that their version of the 2008 defense authorization bill includes a directive for the congressional watchdog to “look into the efficacy of a reorganization that has been in the works for more than a year.” The Hill noted early this year that lawmakers had gotten “less comfortable” with Pentagon explanations, especially regarding plans for the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Special Operations and Low Intensity Conflict.
