The F-35 Boondoggle

George Kenny runs the Electric Politics Web site, conducting extended interviews on core issues like the environment, politics and defense. On May 21, he released his interview with Winslow Wheeler, director of the Straus Military Reform Project. The subject is the F-35 "Joint Strike Fighter." The interview discusses not just why this gigantic defense program should be cancelled, but won't; it also probes other sacred cows of modern defense technology; for example, addressing why we no longer can mass produce fighters and the bane of modern combat aircraft—the "multi-role" fighter design.

The goal of the Straus Military Reform Project is to secure far more effective military forces and much more ethical and professional military and civilian leadership at significantly lower budget levels.
