Read it here.
I will say this.
If it is ever proven that military leadership, or more specifically USMC leadership lied to the public about the F-35 then its over. The USAF can play those reindeer games. No one trusts or believes them anyway. But for the Marine Corps, the mythology of a no bullshit, tell it like it is whether you like it or not is important.
That is one of the reasons why Amos failed as Commandant. People didn't believe him. He was seen as more a politician than a commander.
If the current leadership is walking down the same path then the damage done will be irreparable.
The F-35 is not worth the loss of institutional integrity. Its just not.
