Israel getting the F-15's it always wanted!

Thanks to William for the link!

In a surprise move, Rice added to the F-15E to the mix of weapon systems on the agenda for the 10-year aid package, perhaps reducing funds available to purchase Israel’s planned complement of 75 F-35I Adirs.
“This additional funding will allow Israel to update the lion’s share of its fighter aircraft fleet, including the acquisition of additional F-35s and F-15s,” she says.
Boeing referred questions about the agreement to the US and Israeli air forces, who were not immediately available for comment.
The reality is there for all to see.  The Israelis are buying the F-35 but they're hardly sold on it.

I mean seriously!  If the F-35 was so darn capable and affordable then why buy the F-15?

The truth is obvious if you're willing to accept it.
