This is the July 29, 2015 hearing "Risk of Losing Military Technology Superiority and its Implications for U.S. Policy, Strategy, and Posture in the Asia-Pacific," held before the House Committee on Armed Services. From the testimony of Chairman William "Mac" Thornberry: "Today, we hold a hearing on the risk of losing military technological superiority and its implications for U.S. policy, strategy, and posture in the Asia-Pacific. We probably need to get a little better about succinct titles for our hearings, but it does bring together a lot of what we have been examining over the past couple, 3 months. And I appreciate the senior-level attention within the Department on the Asia-Pacific region, as well as technological superiority. I realize that there are a number of serious security issues around the world all happening at the same time, the reason that we have had some people testify that it is unprecedented in our country's history to have so many serious security issues all happening at the same time. But we cannot, either on this committee, the Department of Defense, or the country in general, cannot allow limited bandwidth to have us ignore what is happening in the Asia- Pacific. " Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Samuel J. Locklear, Curtis M. Scaparrotti, and Christine Wormuth.
