President Obama’s strategic guidance document was not warmly received by Rep. Mac Thornberry.  In a news release, Thornberry said the plan is a series of vague statements and aspirational goals.

Thornberry added that calling a piece of paper a strategy doesn’t make it one.  What really matter

s, Thornberry said, is the specifics on people, weapons and budgets that have not yet been revealed.

Thornberry is  the vice chairman of the House Armed Services Commission.  His district includes counties to the north and east of Lubbock.
