Top Army brass defend troubled intelligence system

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 07/10/2014 - 15:13

FILE - This March 18, 2013 file photo shows Gen. John Campbell speaking at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. Campbell, the army’s vice chief of staff and nominee to lead US forces in Afghanistan, cited his son’s experiences as a soldier in Afghanistan to answer a senator’s tough questions last year about a troubled intelligence technology system. But after an inquiry from The Associated Press, the Army acknowledged this week that Campbell misspoke. He also omitted some key facts as he sought to defend a $4 billion system that critics say has not worked as promised. Campbell will likely face more questions about the intelligence system at his confirmation hearing on Thursday before he begins to lead troops in Afghanistan, where gathering and making sense of intelligence will remain a priority even as U.S. troops draw down. (AP Photo/John Milburn, File)WASHINGTON (AP) — When Gen. John Campbell, the Army's vice chief of staff, appeared last year at a budget hearing on Capitol Hill, he cited his son's experiences as a soldier in Afghanistan to answer a senator's tough questions about a troubled intelligence technology system.
