F-35 はジャンク

Recent articles about the failure of the F-35

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Air Force wasted $549 million on faulty Italian-made cargo planes for the Afghan government and no one involved in the deal has been held to account, according to a new report by a government watchdog.

“Unfortunately, no one involved in the program was held accountable for the failure of the G222 program,” the report said.

The former Air Force officer “had a clear conflict of interest because he was significantly involved with the G222 program while on active duty, then retired and became the primary contact for Alenia on the same program,” the inspector general’s report said.

You’d think Republicans and other fiscal conservatives would be upset about the $1.7 trillion wasted on the F-35 (and the $6.4 trillion wasted on U.S. wars since 9/11).  I read that at CPAC conservatives now are claiming to oppose overseas adventurism.
