The Cable has a nice review of the issue and how just about every Obama official has made it clear that no more Raptors are going into production and that no foreign country will be allowed access to its technology.
I guess Senator Inouye did not get the memos that the F-22 is not for sale and that there has been a change of government in Japan with a political leadership now uninterested in offensive weapons. Or maybe the congressional affairs minister in the Japanese Embassy in Washington has not received them as well.
The Cable, the "inside baseball" report on Washington's foreign policy movers and shakers, is now edited by the very able Josh Rogin a Japan hand. Gambatte!
