… because if we didn’t, maybe one of them would rouse themselves long enough to ask how one person can make both of the following statements about the F-35 and not be lying:
“We haven’t yet signed a contract, as you know. We retain that flexibility.”
“The contract we’ve signed shelters us from any increase in those kinds of costs. We’re very confident of our cost estimates.”
According to the Prime Minister of Canada, we have a contract that protects us from cost increases to the F-35, although on the other hand, we don’t have a contract so we’re welcome to shop elsewhere.
No journalist with a sense of ethics, and no citizen either, should allow the so-called “story” of the F-35 purchase to proceed until our Prime Minister has explain to us whether he was lying last year or is lying this year about this contract he claims to have signed with Lockheed-Martin.Tweet
