belly button
 n.— «So while some may say that the service chiefs do participate in the acquisition process, the study focuses on the fact that is indirectly through budgeting and requirements determination. As such, the current system creates a deep fault line. A central belly-button that can be pushed for accountability in acquisition must be created. Service chiefs need to be held accountable for the whole supply function and need the authority to carry it out.» —by Pierre A. Chao in United States House of Representatives Testimony before the Committee on Armed Services Mar. 29, 2006. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
