House lawmakers demand accountability review for U.S. special operations forces | Washington Times

House defense lawmakers are demanding U.S. special operations command and the head of the Pentagon’s special operations directorate conduct an accountability review of the military’s elite units, amid reports of heavy drug abuse within the teams.

The legislative proposal was offered by California Democrat Rep. Jackie Speier, as an amendment to the House’s version of the Defense spending plan for the upcoming fiscal year. Members of the House Armed Services Committee approved the legislative language as part of the panel’s markup of the draft Pentagon budget on Wednesday.
