To the Editor:
   If "[w]ithout the help it gets from the Ex-Im Bank, Boeing would undoubtedly lose business", then it is getting--maybe even relying on--government subsidies. And it is not "competing with the likes of Europe’s Airbus and Canada’s Bombardier" in anything like a free market.  Maybe if the U.S. were to play by the principles we preach so loudly, the WTO would take our claims against e.g. China and India more seriously.
