I found this cryptic little blurb in a pay-for-view on-line service called "Tactical Report".
Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani is said to be still showing determination to give priority to acquiring the Lockheed Martin F-35 JSF (Joint Strike Fighter) for the Qatari Air Force (QAF). The following 446-word report sheds light on the subject and tells what about the latest US-Qatari contacts on the aircraft in question.I didn't buy the "446-word" report, however I had heard rumors that Qatar was very interested in buying the fighter. This gives some credence to those rumors. It would also add another country to the growing list of those who see the F-35 as the fighter of their future.
