Concern -



I have long wondered why the Bushies seem determined to destroy this country.   They give money to Halliburton and Halliburton goes to Dubai.  They built up the debt to unfathomable proportions.  What is going on?   The car companies in this country are going under.  Have they been helped by this government?   What is going on?

So, today, I see the WSJ on the table, and a full-page ad on the back of the front section catches my eye. 

It says: THE TANKER DECISION:  WHY IT DOESN'T ADD UP.

I am not going to type the whole ad here, but you can check it out at: 

http://boeingblogs.com/tanker/

and at:   http://www.boeing.com/ids/globaltanker/general/decision.html


The ad is bringing attention to the fact that the U.S. Air Force chose a European company over Boeing to build a tanker.  The acquisition process was flawed.  The ad ends with these words. 

    "The bottom line is that the selection process for the KC-X was flawed by countless irregularities.  In the evaluation, selection criteria were misapplied, the RFP was disregarded and the requirements of the Federal Acquisition Regulation were not adhered to - resulting in the selection of a much larger, more vulnerable, less capable and ultimately more costly offering.  It's a decision that doesn't add up;  not for the warfighter or the taxpayer.  And one that should not stand."

Boeing has done a fine job.  They more than met the requirements.  Why wouldn't we give the job to a company in the U.S.?

Something smells once again.

I am emailing Barbara Boxer and Diane Feinstein to find out what is going on.  I suggest you also ask for accountability with our tax dollars.
