POGO Supports OMB Request for F/A-22 and Comanche Program Studies

February 10, 2004 


The President's Office of Management and Budget has requested formal studies of the Air Force's F/A-22 tactical fighter and the Army's Comanche helicopter with an apparent eye toward cutting back or eliminating the costly weapons, according to published reports in the Atlanta Constitution and Baltimore Sun. (Click here to see the original OMB document.)

POGO applauded Director Bolten's overview study of the two programs, and pledged in a letter today to assist in any way. (Click here to view POGO's letter)

"We urge you to remain steadfast in your fight to stop the Pentagon from throwing good money after bad," POGO's Executive Director Danielle Brian wrote in her letter to Bolten. "We also encourage you to remember that the budget decisions you make today will have implications for our fighting men and women for decades to come."
