Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., says there's a disconnect between Pentagon and lawmakers and blamed that divide on what he called the "arrogance" of the Defense Department. There is "an arrogance on the part of DOD and the military leadership," Hunter said, criticizing the Pentagon for not providing more information on personnel costs and other matters. DOD Comptroller Robert Hale denied that the DOD has withheld information. "We certainly testify frequently," Hale said. "I'm not aware that we have failed to provide information. I am aware they would want more definite information."
