Boeing hit with lawsuit for ‘unprecedented cover-up’:

Boeing was slapped with a class-action lawsuit from more than 400 pilots who say the company covered up design flaws in its 737 Max planes.
Pilots affected by the decision to ground the aircraft “suffer and continue to suffer significant lost wages, among other economic and non-economic damages,” according to the lawsuit.

The case is set to be heard by a court in Chicago on October 21, according to ABC [Australian Broadcasting Corporation]. The lawsuit’s original plaintiff, identified only as “pilot X” due to the plaintiff’s fears of reprisal from Boeing officials and customers, filed the suit Friday reportedly seeking millions in damages.

Trump’s Account Of Iran Attack Plan Facing Scrutiny:

Early in the day, the president said he called off the attack at the last minute because it would have killed 150 people in retaliation for the downing of the drone. “We were cocked & loaded to retaliate last night on 3 different sights when I asked, how many will die,” he tweeted.

But administration officials said Trump was told earlier Thursday how many casualties could occur if a strike on Iran were carried out and that he had given the green light that morning to prepare the operation.

President Trump said Saturday Iran was “very wise” not to shoot down a manned plane when it decided to down an unmanned U.S. surveillance drone.

“There was a plane with 38 people yesterday, did you see that? I think that’s a big story. They had it in their sights and they didn’t shoot it down. I think they were very wise not to do that. And we appreciate that they didn’t do that. I think that was a very wise decision,” Trump told reporters Saturday.
