REP. ADAM SMITH (D-WA): I'll just reemphasize the point the chairman has made, a point I made in my opening statement. It would be oh so more helpful -- let me just say, the Department of Defense has been very good at working with this body -- so let's not leave out that. The White House has not been very good about keeping in touch with Congress, working with us, consulting us on major policy issues. It's sort hit or miss. And if we could do better at that, of like you would make my job a whole lot easier. If we could just trust Congress a little bit, and have those consultations before policy decisions are finalized. I think it would make this whole town work better than it is right now.
