The Pentagon's top brass are second-guessing the F-35 Lightning — the most expensive weapons system in history — as spending cuts tighten the military's budget and a new report says F-35 pilots can't see that well out of the cockpit.
The upcoming early dismissal of more than 3,000 sailors will not have an adverse effect on the Navy's capabilities, the chief of naval operations said Thursday.
"Allegations of bribery and kickbacks involving naval officers, contracting personnel and NCIS agents are unheard of," said retired Adm. Gary Roughead in The Washington Post.
"I walked away from the DDG-1000 when I was [chief of naval operations]," retired Adm. Gary Roughead, the Navy's former top officer, told The Times. "In my mind, I thought that the Navy would have a hard time sustaining that program, and instead of just doing it for a few number of ships, the approach I took was, I rather have one large class that allows me to minimize training cost. And the capabilities we needed were resident in the DDG-51."
