JSF of Woe

Not only is the F-35 program in trouble, it's in a lot of trouble. Oh, I don't doubt they'll eventually work it all out, and that the F-35 will be a formidable weapon system. The problem I have is how much it will cost to get there, and how long it will take. I'd like to think this will lead to fundamental changes in the way the government handles defense procurement. We certainly need them.

That said, it's been like this basically forever, at least for the past sixty years or so. If it hasn't changed yet I don't really know what it would take to change now.
