McCain Targets USAF Again

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is back in action, lambasting the Air Force for obfuscating the C-130J program and slow-rolling Congressional demands for more information. The Air Force apparently has not moved fast enough to convert the C-130J commercial contract to a standard military procurement arrangement. (It has just signed a draft agreement with Lockheed Martin.) Former acting Air Force Secretary Michael Dominguez, at his confirmation hearing Wednesday for a top DOD personnel job, got the brunt of McCain’s wrath. McCain threatened to hold up the Dominguez nomination until the matter is “completely resolved.”
