F-22′s fate gets dumped on next president’s lap

Senate-House authorizers passed a defense policy bill today that could keep F-22 production going one more year through 2010, but also attached a big condition: Most of the money can’t be spent until the next president’s staff decides that buying more F-22s “would be in the best interests of the nation”. Lockheed is now on contract to build 183 F-22s. The US Air Force wants almost twice that many. So how many would Barack Obama or John McCain want?
