**********This is my week for mistakes! Anthony (in my comments) is absolutely correct. My links are to the House Armed Services Committee and the nomination is being handled by the Senate Armed Services Committee. But I don't see any links on that site showing any scheduled hearings either***************
All right........someone explain this to me.
First, we've got this:
Date Received: August 02, 2007 (110th Congress)
Nominee: One nomination, beginning with Adm. Gary Roughead , and ending with Adm. Gary Roughead
Referred to: Senate Armed Services
Floor Action: August 02, 2007 - Received in the Senate and referred to the Committee on Armed Services.
List of Nominees: The following named officer for appointment as Chief of Naval Operations, United States Navy and appointment to the grade indicated while assigned to a position of importance and responsibility under title 10, U.S.C., sections 601 and 5033:
To be Admiral Adm. Gary Roughead , 6126
Control Number: 110PN0083200
OK, then we've got this.
Week of August 6 – August 10, 2007
There are no hearings scheduled for this week.
Week of August 13 – August 17, 2007
There are no hearings planned for this period.
Just exactly how long do I have to wait before I get to pop the cork and rub SB's nose in this?
