Defense Secretary Gates chides US House Panel for protecting AM general
Defense Secretary Robert Gates chided a key House committee for failing to approve a budget shift he says is needed urgently to protect troops in Afghanistan. Three of the four primary defense spending committees in Congress have approved taking $900 million from funds set aside for AM General LLC Humvee vehicles the Army says it doesn't want. Gates seeks to use the money for enhanced intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance requested by General David Petraeus, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan.
