SECNAV: Huntington Ingalls Leadership Misled Navy on Ford Elevator Issues

"When asked about the rest of the ship’s issues in getting the plethora of new technology crammed into the ship’s hull working, he noted that it was former Secretary of Defense Don Rumsfeld who made that decision to load Ford up with a record amount of new, and at the time, untested technology."

Rumsfeld quit in 2008 as far as I know, so even if some of his projects were too ambitious, I would've asked Spencer what the USN had been doing since then


there's a tragicomic sentence further up in that article, quote,
But that work-up and deployment, Spencer said, is “going to be way before 2024, I guarantee you that.”
end of quote, as Spencer will be gone with wind by that time

“I’m personally looking at whether we should do a single-phase delivery versus a dual-phase delivery,” Geurts said.
