WASHINGTON, Jan. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- ABFA President Michael McAdams responded to the RAND Corporation's release today of results of its study, Alternative Fuels for Military Applications:

"Shame on the RAND Corporation as it does a great disservice to itself and our nation by wrongly criticizing the Department of Defense and its investment in advanced biofuels and deployment of a Great Green Fleet.  The RAND study clearly embraces the failed energy policies of the past.  The technologies and benefits of advanced biofuels are real.  Every day we are seeing example after example of real world applications from state of the art biorefineries going online to commercial airliners to SUVs and Formula One race cars all fueled with advanced biofuels. America cannot afford to step back in time as RAND would have us do and have future generations pay for that mistake."
