F-35 delayed — again — despite CEO's promise to Trump

via Washington Examiner
The F-35 will be delayed an additional seven months at a cost of at least $500 million despite a recent promise from Lockheed Martin's CEO to drive down costs, the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee said Tuesday.
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., in a statement, said the CEO's personal promise to President-elect Trump was "surprising" given a letter he received from the Pentagon last month detailing the latest delay.
"This is yet another troubling sign for a program that has already nearly doubled in cost, taken nearly two decades to field, and has long been the poster child for acquisition malpractice," McCain said.
This is just too fucking good.  The LM CEO basically lied to Trump's face and now the renegade McCain (Neo-Con supreme) calls them on it!

I can't wait to hear what the fanboy reaction to this one is gonna be!
