Anthony Brown, who sponsored a series of amendments to save big chunks of the back office and support services that Thornberry was targeting. While most of Brown’s attempts failed, Thornberry gave in to criticism over his call to eliminate the Defense Information Systems Agency and the Washington Headquarters Service, instead deciding to leave any such cuts up to the Pentagon’s chief management officer.
