In our first CongressWatch Minute, Senior Congressional Reporter John T. Bennett discusses why Congress may stumble and bicker into failing to grant the Pentagon’s request for extra funding for Israel’s Iron Dome before leaving for a five-week summer break — even though the proposal has broad support among members of both parties in the House and Senate.
CongressWatch is Defense News’ new web channel for breaking news, analysis and commentary about defense and national security from Capitol Hill.
