"The Pentagon announced today it has stopped payment on a controversial fighterjet engine program that military brass long decried as a boondoggle, but that had thrived for years anyway with the backing of powerful leaders in Congress and a push from a brigade of well-connected lobbyists. 'The Department of Defense today notified the General Electric/Rolls Royce Fighter Engine Team and the Congress that the F136 Joint Strike Fighter engine contract has been terminated,' a Defense Department release said Monday."
