Tanker Wars Episode 5 - The Empire Strikes Back - Contract Cancelled

"So if we can't win then no-one can."

Clearly responding to intense pressure from some quarters, The Pentagon announced today that they are suspending the contract until after the next election.

There is one clear winner and one clear loser in this.

The winner is the Boeing Company. The loser is the American Armed Forces.

Some people I hope should be ashamed of themselves. It seems that politics as usual is the norm in defense contracts.
