Senate panel OKs Joint Chiefs chairman
Tuesday - 7/30/2013, 7:00pm EDT
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Senate Armed Services Committee has approved the nomination of Army Gen. Martin Dempsey for another two-year term as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
The committee also voted on Tuesday for another term for Adm. James Winnefeld, the vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs. The full Senate could vote on the nominations this week before the congressional summer recess.
Sen. John McCain had threatened to block Dempsey's nomination until he received additional information on Syria. Dempsey responded to the request, clearing the way for a vote.
The committee also approved the nominations of Jon Rymer to be Defense Department's inspector general and Stephen W. Preston to be general counsel.
