  •  
  • Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan is reportedly under investigation for alleged ethics violations, multiple outlets reported.

FOR THOSE TRYING TO FOLLOW ALONG - LOCKHEED MARTIN A BOEING COMPETITOR MAKES THE F-35

 

Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan, a former Boeing executive who took over at the Pentagon in January after the stunning resignation of Jim Mattis, is reportedly under investigation for alleged ethics violations, the Department of Defense Office of Inspector General confirmed Wednesday.

 

"The Department of Defense Office of Inspector General has decided to investigate complaints we recently received that Acting Secretary Patrick Shanahan allegedly took actions to promote his former employer, Boeing, and disparage its competitors, allegedly in violation of ethics rules," a DOD IG spokesperson told POLITICO, which reported in January that Shanahan had been critical of Lockheed Martin's F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter.

The development and production of the F-35 is problematic. Would you expect the Sect. of Defense to remain silent?

Boeing has killed over 300 people in the last 6 months in their Max 8 ...................most reasonable people would consider that result - extremely problematic

You made a comment that required some fact-based analysis - 100's of people have not died Flying in a F-35

 

300 including 8 Americans died flying in 2 different Boeing Max 8's in the last 6 months

 

The Boeing Executive Trump put in a acting role at DOD - trashed his Competitors Plane that's killed No One & was mute on his Company's planes that have killed hundreds

 

Most reasonable people understand what's going on here

I Don't See The Killing of Innocent Civilians As Part of the Fine Print in the Contracts That The Worlds Airlines Were Getting from the Guy who Trump hired to be DOD Acting Secretary

 

What I did see in those Contracts from the guy Trump hired to be Acting Secretary of the DOD

 

Was

 

A. If the Planes Computer Malfunctions & starts to Improperly Drive the Plane into the Ground killing everyone on board - the switch to shut down the Malfunction is a Special Option that had to be purchased seperately

 

One of Boeing’s optional safety features is the angle-of-attack indicator, which displays the two sensors’ readings, and the other is a disagree light, which is activated if the sensors are at odds with each other.

 

The two safety features could have helped the pilots detect faulty readings, according to the New York Times, which reported Thursday that Boeing — which will soon upgrade the MCAS software — will make the disagree light standard equipment on all MAX jets.

 

The angle-of-attack indicator will remain an option that airlines can buy separately, a person familiar with the changes told the newspaper on condition of anonymity.

That means nothing. With all the bouncing around, it is hard to tell what you are upset about. Since it starts with "Capitalism" a case could be made that is your problem but who knows?
