Morons in charge

Capt. Jeff Haney was flying the Air Force's next-generation stealth F-22 Raptor on a routine training mission in Alaska in November 2010 when a sudden malfunction cut off his oxygen completely. ... Air Force Accident Investigation Board ... determined ... Haney was to blame for the crash because he was too distracted by his inability to breathe to fly the plane properly.
So it's the pilots fault that the plane didn't provide him with oxygen. ...and the other whopper...
Despite being the most advanced [expensive] fighters on the planet, none of the planes have been used on a combat mission since they went combat-ready in late 2005. Critics told ABC News that's because the jet was designed to fight rival, sophisticated fighters – an enemy that doesn't exist right now.
What?! We're not using them because we want to give the enemy a chance? Is that what they're saying?

Heads should roll.
