Obama Outsourcing Helicopter Purchases to Russian Company, Workers?

~ The Rebel ~ 2012/08/05 13:54:09
The Pentagon ordered a couple of MI-17 helicopters earlier this year to replace severely damaged aircraft. And in recent days it purchased 10 more helicopters to replace aging Afghan aircraft. The helicopters were purchased from Russia for over a half-billion dollars, according to Defense Department officials.

The monetary value of the 12 Russian-built helicopters, including warranty services and replacement parts, is reported to be $217.7 million, a Pentagon official said, according Senator John Cornyn (R-TX).

The purchases this year are part of a larger helicopter contract President Barack Obama’s Pentagon signed in May 2011 with the Rosoboron Export Corporation.
With all the accusation regarding outsourcing emanating from the Obama White House and his re-election campaign team, the Pentagon may be embarressed over the outsourcing of jobs and money to a Russian arms exporter because of concerns that the firm is also selling attack helicopters to the government of Syrian President
Bashar al Assad.
