Boeing wins the big air refueling tanker a decade after it was initially awarded it. Since Washington state came out on top, the process must've been pristine. :)
U.S. Sen. Patty Murray hailed the decision as a victory for American workers. Well, not all of America:
“The U.S. Department of Defense, in not awarding the aerial refueling tanker contract to EADS North America today, has made a egregious error and America’s military men and women are ultimately the biggest losers,” the Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce said in a prepared statement.
Wow, now the DOD hates the troops. Thoughts on this?
UPDATE: EADS won't challenge Boeing's “low-ball” bid. Only suspense now is whether Boeing can make money on the deal.
