"In blistering remarks from the Senate floor, McCain, R-Ariz., said Air Force Secretary James Roche intentionally told Congress one thing about the tanker deal while offering conflicting views in private e-mails to other government officials."
"But McCain suggested that the misdeeds may go far deeper than that, and he reserved his harshest words for the Air Force."
"I don't buy it. I simply cannot believe that one person, acting alone, can rip off taxpayers out of possibly billions of dollars. This appears to be a case of either a systemic failure in procurement oversight, willful blindness or rank corruption. Either way, full accountability among Air Force leadership is in order," he said."
