#3 ...Want to make clear - my opposition to this is no reflection on the Hawk. It is a superb little aircraft at what it does (training, light attack, and even not bad at air-to-air). The shame of it is that our procurement system is so broken that we can't come up with a make-'em-like-hotcakes little bird like this any more.

#4 and Congress will never know...
