Report: USAF Selects EADS for Tanker Deal

US Air Force makes a deal with foreign supplier

It's a Malaysian news source, and I call bullsh$#. I just don't see a way that a foreign contractor wins this outright, or even get over half of a split contract.

In either case, the winner(s) will be announced in the next week.

FWIW, the biggest critic of the original deal, which was largely a gift to Boeing, was John McCain, and he'll be busy for the next few months.
