Cuts Ground 1/3 Of U.S. Airforce

NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — A top general says the automatic spending cuts triggered by the lack of a budget agreement in Washington will ground one-third of the U.S. Air Force's active-duty force of combat planes. Gen. Mike Hostage says that means "accepting the risk that combat airpower may not be ready to respond immediately to new contingencies as they occur." Hostage says only units preparing to deploy to major operations, such as the war in Afghanistan, will remain mission-ready.
