Defense Secretary Robert Gates, through spokesman Geoff Morrell, has reacted to the House vote on the JSF alternate engine. His statement:

Secretary Gates welcomes today's vote and is gratified that the full House has recognized the merits of the Department's position in opposing the JSF extra engine. He understands this afternoon's vote is but one step, although a very important one, on the path to ensuring that we stop spending limited dollars on unwanted and unneeded defense programs.
