USAF intel video warns air power gap closing

Earlier this month, the top Air Force intelligence officer, Lt. Gen. David Deptula warned a roomful of generals that the U.S. was losing its lead in air power supremacy, and showed a video that left many in the room wide-eyed and worried.

The video – now available to watch at Stripes Central --  is worth seeing. “Threats to 2010 Air Supremacy” was compiled by the Air Force Intelligence Analysis Agency.

“For the first time, our claim to air supremacy is in jeopardy,” Deptula told the Air Force Association’s national convention at a hotel complex along the Washington beltway.

Here is the Stars and Stripes article about the presentation:
