Reigning in Tomcat Sales

The Pentagon's banned the sale of surplus F-14 parts.

Good idea, since only two nations ever flew the planes -- the US and Iran.

The US recently retired it's fleet of "Tomcats." So, look like the only buyers would be people supplying Iran.

The Associated Press earlier this month uncovered Pentagon sales of surplus parts -- where buyers were reselling parts to potential military threats to the US including Iran and China. (AP)
