Lawmakers want to know if Defense Department officials intentionally hid plans to boost troop deployments along the U.S. southern border when they testified before Congress this week.

“The number one thing that the House Armed Services Committee wants from the Defense Department this Congress is transparency,” committee Chairman Adam Smith, D-Wash., said in a statement Thursday afternoon. “We did not get full transparency during this week’s hearing.”

In a scathing letter to acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan, Smith criticized Under Secretary of Defense for Policy John Rood for not mentioning impending plans to increase the active-duty military presence along the border by 3,500 troops.
