Pentagon Stalls China Report

A Republican member of Congress on Friday called on the Pentagon to comply with current law and release its annual report on China’s military buildup that was due out on Thursday. Rep. J. Randy Forbes, a member of the Armed Services Committee and a Virginia Republican, stated in a letter to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta that the report is late and that repeated excuses from the Pentagon for the delay do not justify “repeated disregard for the law.”
