Loren Thompson of Lexington Institute disagrees with Bond on JSF split
JSF CONTRACT: Loren Thompson of the Lexington Institute, in Arlington, Va., doesn't agree with Bond's proposal to split JSF production. Bond voices concern that the company that loses the JSF competition will ultimately have to leave the fighter business, hurting the defense industrial base. He would prefer that Boeing - which would probably build the JSF in his state if it wins - and Lockheed Martin both have production lines for the fighter. But Thompson sees it differently.
