The 2005 Quadrennial Defense Review is out. And, among other things, they are calling for a new long-range bomber. WTF? Who are we going to bomb with this, and why can’t we do it with our current B-52Hs, B-1Bs and B-2s?

OTOH, the QDR calls for us to pull funds out of “excessive overmatch” (read: Raptor) projects. But isn’t that just what a new long-range bomber would be?
