Bite the Bullet

Some Arizonians are mighty unhappy with Republican Sen. John McCain, who they believe dropped the ball when it comes to support for a land swap deal around Luke AFB, Ariz., according to The Arizona Republic. The Arizona governor’s Military Facilities Task Force developed a strategy to keep Luke off the base closure list that included land trades for farmers whose land borders the air base and who cannot sell their land to developers. The plan appears to have died now that the BRAC veil has lifted—at least for now.
