The House Armed Services Committee’s markup of its National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) is underway tonight. The Senate Armed Services Committee started its markup last week. However, the numbers they authorize and the appropriators appropriate may be all wrong.

  • Bryan Clark, senior fellow at the Hudson Institute and former special assistant to the Chief of Naval Operations, said the 355-ship Navy might be irrelevant if the United States cannot deter China in the near term.
  • Clark said the U.S. should focus on improving capability in this decade by ramping up production of platforms already in the pipeline and finding ways to keep existing platforms.
  • Clark said providing the Defense Department with too much money leads to failed programs, while cutting spending shrinks the military, harming the country’s ability to compete.
