The Pentagon and Congress' investigative arm are sparring over the location of the military's newest geographic command.
The decision by former Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta's not to relocate the Africom headquarters to the United States "was based largely on the Combatant Commanders' military judgment which is not easily quantifiable," Gen. Lennox said. "If [Defense Secretary Chuck] Hagel sees the need to readdress the location of Africom, the department will conduct appropriate analysis, consistent with sound analytic practice, to inform such a decision."
"This study focused on several elements of the Africom question and is not intended to be a comprehensive analysis to determine the optimal location for the Africom headquarters," Army Lt. Gen. Robert P. Lennox, principal deputy director the Pentagon's Cost Assessment and Program Evaluation office, said in a response to Congress.
