Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld will also recommend a list of scores of other domestic bases from which thousands of troops would be withdrawn, or in some cases added from other installations in the United States or overseas.
When a U.S. military installation shuts down, its officers and their families are uprooted and relocated to facilities elsewhere, leaving holes in customer bases of local businesses.
Lawmakers, local civic officials and their hired lobbyists, as well as base commanders themselves, will spend the next four months trying to convince the commission that their facilities shouldn't be closed or consolidated.

 USATODAY.com - Top commanders in Iraq allowed dogs to be used   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-18)
WASHINGTON — U.S. military commanders in Iraq authorized the use of dogs for interrogations at the Abu Ghraib prison five months after Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld barred the practice for terrorism suspects at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, according to classified military documents.
The fact that top U.S. commanders in Iraq explicitly authorized use of dogs in interrogations undercuts claims by the Pentagon and field commanders that the mistreatment was solely the work of guards who abused their authority.
On the other hand, the testimony indicates that some episodes involving dogs violated safeguards put in place by commanders in Iraq to protect inmates from being bitten and to ensure that dogs were always under control of their handlers.

U.S.-Taiwan military exchanges and dialogue about contingencies serve two purposes: They put Beijing on notice that a military adventure against Taiwan could have the most severe consequences; and in the event that U.S. intervention does become necessary, they provide a mechanism for success.
Senior U.S. military personnel (flag officers and civilian officials above the deputy assistant secretary level) should be permitted to travel to Taiwan to engage in the full spectrum of exchanges that are prudent in light of China’s military buildup.
Moreover, there are concerns in the Pentagon that U.S. military teams do not have adequate access to Taiwan’s civilian defense and national security leaders and cannot communicate the urgency and importance of critical intelligence on China’s rapidly modernizing military force.
