I am so sick of politics taking precedence over troop need.

The Chinook is a good helicopter - everyone knows that. But for this specific mission, it could not be more wrong.

It is a heavy lift helicopter - by its own admission, and it will be more expensive now that all aspects of cost will be considered.

At the end of the day, if the medium lift helicopter is what the troops need, shouldn't we get them a MEDIUM LIFT HELICOPTER?

Maybe I'm too simple when it comes to Washington DC politics - didn't this already happen once with Boeing and the DoD?

Does Boeing have compromising photos of DoD executives?...
