Senate Democrats rip Pentagon's coronavirus response in letter to Esper


Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON — Ten Democratic senators blasted the Pentagon’s response to the coronavirus crisis as “disjointed and slow” in a letter to Defense Secretary Mark Esper, accusing him of unnecessarily placing troops at risk. 

“Civilian leadership of the Department [of Defense] has failed to act sufficiently, quickly, and has often prioritized [combat] readiness at the expense of the health of service members and their families,” the senators wrote Monday in the eight-page letter shared by the office of Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. “This failure has adversely affected morale, and, despite the department’s best intentions, undermined readiness.” https://www.stripes.com/news/us/senate-democrats-rip-pentagon-s-coronavirus-response-in-letter-to-esper-1.627734
