The Pentagon has cut several weapons programs it says are no longer needed. Ashton Carter, defense undersecretary for acquisition, technology and logistics, says the cuts may avoid further cancellations of major programs. He said at a conference this week, "It's fair to say that the poorest performers were identified." He added other programs, like the latest generation fighter, the F-35, are still being reviewed and could be restructured. Scheduling slippage has been a chronic problem for the F-35. Others, like the C-17 transport have been axed.
The two guns Pentagon shooter John Patrick Bedell had with him when he opened fire Thursday were a Taurus 9 millimeter and a Sturm, Ruger & Co. 9 millimeter, sources tell WTOP.
