State Department to Send Ambassador to Singapore to Sell F-35 Warplanes

Starting early next week, the Singapore Airshow is a big place for international arms deals to go down. US arms makers like Lockheed and Raytheon are responsible for some of the largest such deals, but finding buyers isn’t always easy.

The US State Department has apparently decided that selling Lockheed planes isn’t just Lockheed’s job, it’s the American diplomatic corps’ job, and is sending Ambassador Tina Kaidanow to the airshow specifically to drum up sales of the F-35.

The huge, costly Lockheed planes aren’t exactly flying off the shelves, and the State Department says this would be a good test case for the administration’s new policy of having officials take the lead in securing arms sales for major US companies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder just how Ambassador Kaidanow feels about shilling for one of the US's top Merchants of Death, Lockheed Corpoation!!!
