Wednesday Lockheed Martin delivered the last of 187 F-22 Raptor fighter jets to the U.S. Air Force. The roll out prompted executives to describe the plane as "the baddest bird on the planet" and "an icon of American power." The facts suggest otherwise.
The F-22 Raptor is a plane designed in the early 90s to fight the planes the Soviet Union didn't build in the late 80s. The reason we've never used the Raptor in Iraq is it doesn't work in places where there are wars.
