Boeing says it will withdraw from a massive Pentagon program to replace America's ground-based nuclear missiles, citing concerns with how the Pentagon has handled the procurement. The move makes Northrop Grumman the sole bidder for the program. Unless the Pentagon changes course, Northrop will be locked into a military program that should be worth tens of billions of dollars over several decades.
