Tanker Questions Take Flight
Congress has begun poking around on why and how the Air Force botched the effort to award a $40 billion contract for refueling tanker planes.
The questions came one day after the Pentagon said it would conduct another, expedited competition to decide who should get the extraordinarily rich deal: Northrop Grumman, which had won the deal, or incumbent Boeing Co., which successfully protested that award.
Here's what the AP had to say:
"Congress sought clarity from a Defense Department official and congressional investigators on whether the recent competition's failure was confined to the Air Force, or indicative of a more systemic problem among the Pentagon's procurement process."
A more systemic problem? We already know the answer to that.
