Boeing will protest Air Force tanker contract FROM MSNBC

WASHINGTON - Boeing Co. on Monday said it will formally protest a $35 billion Air Force contract awarded to European Aeronautic Defence and Space Co. and Northrop Grumman Corp.

The Chicago-based aerospace company “found serious flaws in the process that we believe warrant appeal,” Boeing’s chairman and CEO, Jim McNerney, said in a statement.

Boeing’s protest, to be filed Tuesday, compounds existing pressure on Air Force officials to explain their decision to award the high-stakes deal to a European company instead of an American one. There has been fierce backlash on Capitol Hill, led by lawmakers from Washington, Kansas and other states that would have gained jobs had Boeing won. Air Force officials have said the impact on American jobs was not one of their criteria for awarding the contract [emphasis added].
