Senate Armed Services Committee members Sen. John McCain, Arizona Republican, and Sen. Kelly Ayotte, New Hampshire Republican, have criticized the Air Force's decision to retire the A-10 Warthogs in favor of keeping the B-1B aircraft in play as the A-10s are the only aircraft specifically devoted to close air support.
