How long dumb ideas persist

The designer of the F-16 explains what a terrible idea the F-35 is. This is such a weird topic to me but I’ve seen as many articles about how bad an idea the F-35 is as I’ve seen articles about how bad an idea a World Cup in Qatar is.

Whatever the truth of the matter is, it’s enlightening to hear a designer elaborate on exactly why another idea is bad. TL;DW: bureaucracy fucks everything up.
