Misguided Abbott strikes out on the JSF

Tony Abbott was badly misled in his purchase of the Joint Strike Fighter. Despite his noble intentions to maintain Australia's air superiority, his decision could have serious security consequences.

The Australian Prime Minister has seriously misled the Australian public on one of the most important decisions ever made by our government: the purchase of the Joint Strike Fighter or F-35.

This is not a claim I make lightly.

Tony Abbott did not deliberately tell untruths to the Australian public. I have a high opinion of Tony Abbott, but on this occasion he was badly misled, as was his cabinet.
