F-22 R.I.P.

The Senate voted to terminate further production of the Air Force's topline F-22 fighter jets Tuesday, giving President Barack Obama a major spending victory and siding with the Pentagon's desire for smaller jets better suited to 21st century wars. F-22 supporters complained the action would be a blow to long-term national defense - and cost thousands of jobs in the middle of the recession.

Who is in charge at the new Walter Reed?

In September 2011, a new, 354-bed Walter Reed National Medical Center is expected to open its doors on the grounds of the current Bethesda Naval Medical Center in Maryland. The current Walter Reed in Northwest DC will close its doors forever. It's all part of the Pentagon's Base Realignment and Closure process, BRAC. Yesterday, the House Armed Services Committee found that the road to the new Walter Reed is currently paved with a lot of uncertainty.

Moran wins reprieve for DoD agencies; no BRAC move until 2014 at earliest

A Northern Virginia lawmaker is successful in making the case to the Pentagon for a delay to give more than three dozen DoD agencies in Arlington County and the City of Alexandria two more years to make their move to new secure facilities under the BRAC process. Rep. Jim Moran (D.-Va.) says new buildings and infrastructure at Fort Belvoir simply aren't ready, and in the meantime, wants to ease the financial pressures on DoD landlords until the moves can happen.

Remains Recovered

U.S. Air Force Maj. Kenneth Bourland's remains were found at the Hotel Montana in Port-au-Prince, Haiti Feb. 7th after more than three weeks of the search and rescue. The U.S. Southern Command says Bourland, 37, of Birmingham, Ala., accompanied a U.S. flag officer during an official visit to Haiti Jan. 12th. He was among four other U.S. military personnel in Hotel Montana when the 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti. The other individuals survive

More Marines Headed to Haiti

The Pentagon is ordering another 2,000 Marines to Haiti, diverting troops that were on their way to the Persian Gulf and Africa region. Navy officials say three ships that left Virginia Monday for their regular deployment have been told to go Haiti instead for the earthquake relief effort. The first group of some 2,000 Marines already off Haiti's shore went on land for the first time Tuesday to help deliver aid. A Pentagon official says there are some 11,500 U.S. military personal in Haiti or offshore and 16,000 are expected by week's end.

Falcon View heads to Haiti

The U.S. military is sending significant resources to Haiti to help out in the aftermath of the earthquake. Among those re sources is Air Force Intelligence gear to help with mapping. Many types of maps are supported, but the primary ones of interest to most users are aeronautical charts, satellite images and elevation maps. Many roads and landmarks are destroyed, so equipment to figure out where they were is essential.

Who Killed Professor Ali-Mohammadi

The CIA says it had nothing to do with it. A remote-controlled bomb killed a Tehran University scientist on Tuesday in an attack Iran blamed on the United States. Iranian officials and state media described slain professor Massoud Ali-Mohammadi as a nuclear scientist, but a spokesman said he did not work for the Atomic Energy Organisation. Iran's cabinet in a statement blamed agents of the United States for the killing of Ali-Mohammadi. A State Department official in Washington said charges of U.S. involvement were absurd.
