REPORT: State Department Has Lost Egypt’s F-16s... Don't Know Where They Are Stored...
(THE WASHINGTON FREE BEACON) -- Deputy State Department Press Secretary Marie Harf was unable to answer a question about where Egypt’s F-16’s are currently being stored Thursday.
“The answer is I don’t know. I think different places around the U.S.; I know that the F-16s that weren’t delivered are someplace in the U.S., and yeah,”Harf responded.
Below is a transcript of the exchange:
Q: Operationally, where’s the storage facility? Are these things like sitting in a garage somewhere? (Scattered laughter.)
MS. HARF: I — the answer is I don’t know. I think different places around the U.S.; I know that the F-16s that weren’t delivered are someplace in the U.S., and yeah.
Q: But they’re staying with the manufacturer or they’re sitting with like DOD?
MS. HARF: I don’t know the answer to that. I don’t know who — it probably varies from contract to contract, but I just don’t know. DOD would probably be able to answer that.
Q: Do you think it’s possible they’ll get delivered to another customer in the meantime?
MS. HARF: Good question, I don’t know. I could ask. Read more via WFB...
