National Review;12/20/1999, Vol. 51 Issue 24, p26
The article deals with the testimony given by U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Henry H. Shelton before the U.S. Senate in October 1999 regarding the 1 percent across-the-board cut in federal spending proposed by the U.S. Republican Party. According to Shelton, the proposed cut would have a devastating effect on the nation's military. The remarks made by Shelton fueled the frustration felt by congressional Republicans toward the Joint Chiefs chairman, resulting in accusations that Shelton cares more about defending U.S. President Bill Clinton than thinking about the needs of the U.S. military.
