12:36 am
affects every level of the u.s. health care system h cnbc's senior washington correspondent got a closer look at the report. shep, in the event of a diplomatic dispute or worse in which the drug makers stop shipping ingredients to the u.s., the report found the results of that could be catastrophic the pentagon's inspector general found that just 28% of drug ingredient manufacturing sites supply the u.s. market are actually inside the country. 31% are in china and india i talked to one expert today who echos the warning. the worst that could happen is we could have military personnel at risk from either infectious diseases or for chemical warfare and not have the supplies to have them prepared to properly do battle >> the ig makes a number of recommendations including pushing for legislation requiring drug ingredients and product country of origin on
