Bomb Shell Explodes in Congress Boeing Loser to Airbus for replacement U.S. Airtankers

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. Air Force decision awarding a $35 billion aircraft contract to a team including the European parent of Airbus landed like a bomb in Congress on Friday, drawing howls of protest from lawmakers aligned with the loser, America's Boeing Co.

Of course it doesn't help that the two Senators from Washington State are anti-military female Democrats, and Boeing's new HQ is in Barack Obama's State.
