Why does everything have to take on political undertones? I think USAF is simply trying to ensure that the U.S. team is the best it can be. If a pilot can't make the committment to attend these two contests, are they going to be able to make the committment to practice enough to be competititive at the world level? Ask anyone who has been on the team how many weeks (months?) of their time it took to prepare. I think this method of team selection will weed out the ones who aren't willing to do the kind of work required to become a world class competitor.
