"Air Force had made a number of significant errors that could have affected the outcome of what was a close competition between Boeing and Northrop Grumman."
The response from the GAO prompted Boeing's Vice-President to release the following statement.
"We appreciate the professionalism and diligence the GAO showed in its review of the KC-X acquisition process. We look forward to working with the Air Force on the next steps in this critical procurement for our warfighters."
Did you hear that? It's as if several thousand people suddenly exhailed in relief all at once.
