Committe on Commerce, Science, and Transportation in Washington,
September 3, 2003. The Pentagon Inspector General's office on Wednesday
confirmed it was investigating whether a former Air Force official
improperly shared a rival's data with Boeing Co. during talks about a
$22.4 billion Air Force deal to lease, then buy 100 767 tankers. McCain
is a leading critic of the deal. REUTERS/Stefan Zaklin
