Defense budget analyst Todd Harrison warned Tuesday
that if sequestration remains in effect, Congress may have to take another look at the Air Force’s top acquisition programs—the F-35A strike fighter,

air force smaller, but leveraging technology and advancements will enable USAF to
have a “more capable force with the ability to counter our most dangerous
threats,” Air Combat Command boss Gen. Mike Hostage said.
Four former Air Force Secretaries convened at AFA’s
Air & Space Conference in National Harbor, Md., on Tuesday to discuss
lessons learned from their time in service and to offer advice to current Air
Force Secretary Deborah Lee James.
