From a Justice Department press release:
The United States has filed a lawsuit against Kaman Dayron Inc., alleging that the Orlando, Fla., defense contractor violated the False Claims Act by knowingly substituting non-conforming parts in fuzes (sophisticated ignition devices incorporating mechanical and/or electronic components) supplied to the military for use in “bunker buster” bombs, the Justice Department announced today. The suit was filed today in U.S. District Court in Orlando.
The allegations relate to FMU-143 fuzes for use in hard target penetration warheads, colloquially referred to as “bunker buster” bombs. The government alleges that Kaman Dayron knowingly substituted non-conforming bellows motors for the specified parts in three lots of fuzes supplied to the military, and that the non-conforming parts could cause the fuzes to fire prematurely, creating a hazard for military personnel and causing misfires of the warheads. The military discovered the parts substitution and has quarantined the defective fuzes.
Now let’s rush to determine the religious motivations of Kaman Dayron’s chief executives. Did they act alone, or in consortium with other defense contractors? Perhaps it’s time to start screening defense contractors for disturbing anti-American warning signs.
