After weeks of indecision, the Pentagon has decided to go forward with a key round of tests on the troubled F/A-22 stealth fighter, Reuters reports."The testing begins a month later than recently planned (in April), but the stealthy, next-generation fighter program -- currently valued at more the $70 billion -- could still be on track for a December review on whether to proceed to full production levels," the wire service says.Critics in Congress and without have blasted the jet for big cost overruns, and for a deisgn better suited to the Cold War than to the fight against terror.
