Det møder hård kritik, at Boeing nu overvejer at lægge sag an mod Danmark efter at Boeing blev valgt fra ved typevalget i kampflykonkurrencen i juni i år.

Det er redaktørerne på mediet Second Line Of Defense, der mener, at Boeing er total galt afmarcheret, når de kritiserer den danske proces.

“Boeing going directly against a decision made by a sovereign nation, essentially telling them they do not know what they are doing is insulting. It is the worst aspects of “Engulf and Devour”. It is also the case that it makes little sense to try and intimidate a small nation when Boeing is still trying to sell other small nations, like Finland. Why would any small nation wish to have a US company play like it is the tanker competition in the United States?” spørger Ed Timperlake og Robbin Laird fra Second Line Of Defense.

I midten af oktober søgte Boeing om aktindsigt hos Forsvarsministeriet i alle papirer med relation til kampflyevalueringen med henblik på at vurdere, om de skal anlægge sag mod Danmark. I den forbindelse sagde Boeing-topchefen Debbie Rub:

“As we said when the decision was announced, we believe the ministry’s evaluation of the competitors was fundamentally flawed and inaccurately assessed the cost and capability of the F/A-18 Super Hornet.”

Men den udtalelse går Boeing-chefen over stregen, mener Timperlake og Laird.

“For a Vice President of Boeing to challenge the wisdom and judgment of an independent nation, reaching out to Danish voters and all political parties to call their defense judgment suspect, crosses a very significant line of alliance comity,” skriver Ed Timperlake og Robbin Laird fra Second Line Of Defense.
