Slightly old news, but a lot of people got pretty angry over the recent Air Force tanker competition, because there were apparently some irregularities or the Air Force made some procedural missteps. The Air Force recently opened yet another round of bidding... we'll see how things go this time.
Here's what I'm wondering: People are upset about procedural problems, but where is the outrage that we've spent all this time and money and have so precious little to show for it (actually, we have nothing to show for it). Where's the outrage over the fact that some of our tankers are 50 years old?
We're so concerned that the process was flawed (perhaps we expected perfection?) that we've overlooked the lack of results.
Chalk up another "victory" for Michael Hammer and his legions of process-oriented Hammerheads (really, that's what his fans call themselves!).
