F35-----The $1.5 Trillion Jet That Ate The Pentagon

“We don’t know where all the money is going.”

The F-35 is the most expensive weapons program in history, with a total cost of $1.5 trillion, that has turned into a total fiasco.

Note the term, “concurrent development.” It’s a key concept – and at the core of why this deal went haywire.
