Rajiv Chandrasekaran talked about his Washington Post article, “Too Big to Bail,” an examination of the embattled F-35 jet fighter program. He highlights the program’s unique ability to avoid budget cuts despite increases in production costs and delayed project completion. He points out that the program will not receive spending reductions from the budget sequester process. He defines what opponents of the F-35 call “political engineering” which he describes as a process employed by defense contractors to spread production throughout as many states as possible. He says this is one of many reasons defense contractor Lockheed Martin gets continued funding for their advanced fighter jet for the Navy, Air Force and Marines. close
