"...requires all military-branded garments produced in Bangladesh and sold at Department of Defense-owned base retail stores, also known as “exchanges,” to comply with an enforceable fire and building safety accord..."
Only garments from Bangladesh? Is that the only country the DOD buys clothing from or ever will buy from? Seems to me there are quite few countries where garment workers toil in unsafe conditions. And, who is going to inspect to ensure fire and building safety codes are followed?
