    Not sure how this got past Obama. He must not be paying attention or he is mad at Putin or one hell of a bribe. I will put my 2 cents on Northrop just because they are in California.

    Great news for Northrup. I suspect both teams made excellent offerings but in my view the decider was in securing a strong industrial base. I don't think it is in the interest of the US to be totally dependent on just Boeing/Lockheed.

    PS. Jeff, you beat Jura to this. He must still be sleeping. Lol
