The Hill has an interesting piece today about Sen. John McCain’s complaint that the Air Force may be trying to wriggle out of the joint basing decisions that were set out in the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure round.

The Hill story focuses on concerns in Alaska and Hawaii, but we’re also hearing lots of chatter here about friction in the joining of Fort Lewis and McChord – in particular, McChord concerns about having to work under the direction of their Army brothers and sisters at Lewis.
