Maj. Gen. Wendy Masiello, a senior USAF contracting officer, told the Senate Armed Services Committee that the Air Force's mistaken release of data to KC-X tanker bidders Boeing and EADS North America in November 2010 did not reveal any proprietary or pricing information relative to the competition, Jan. 27, 2011.
