The Los Angeles Times reported that auditors repeatedly raised questions about the Pentagon’s C-130J contract with Lockheed Martin during the 1990s but the program apparently continued unchecked until an Inspector General’s report this summer pointed to rising costs for the 50 transport planes that remain unfit for combat duty five years after delivery. One auditor told the Times it “would have made a difference if they (the audits) had been public.” (11/22/04)
