Homeland defense hearing

Filed under: Homeland Defense — by Philip J. Palin on May 12, 2009

Today, Tuesday, May 12 at 10:00 (eastern) the Senate Armed Services Committee will meet to consider the nomination of Paul Stockton to be Assistant Secretary of Defense for Homeland Defense and Americas’ Security Affairs.

An archived copy of the hearing’s webcast is available at:

Several readers have previously critiqued the lack of substantive questioning of those being nominated.  The questions asked of these four nominees by the Armed Services Committee struck me as usually matching the serious issues the positions would engage.

Go Paul Go! Hoping for the best of all things to happen for former HLSWatch bloggers!

I wonder if the relationship between Paul’s new job and NORTHCOM will be explored in detail?
