I'm so irritated by all of these military contracts going over seas, I don't even know what to do. I'm sure I'm not the only one. You could think that a great "Economic Stimulus Package" would be to keep 19,000 jobs IN THE US!!
On Friday, February 29, 2008, the Air Force announced its decision to award the KC-X Next Generation Air-fueling Tanker contract to a foreign competitor in the name of the Northrop Grumman/European Aeronautic Defence and Space Team -- representing a $35 billion award.
This is outrageous.
An American tanker should be built by an American company with American workers.
