    Hard to argue with the Congresswoman

    Just wanted to know your background so everyone can see where you're coming from. It would seem like your expertise is from reading articles vice actually doing CAS as a FW or RW guy.... The F-22/15 are the air dominance fighters for the AF. You are correct in that the F-35 is a multi-role...
