Lott Criticizes Rumsfeld

By  | 

U.S. Senator Trent Lott says Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld should consider U.S. bases overseas before closing any more bases in the U.S.

Lott has repeatedly encouraged the Defense Department to keep all U.S. bases.

He says he remains very skeptical of Rumsfeld's plan to liquidate American military facilities before surveying those abroad.
