It's one thing to believe that the manufacturer can meet the design requirements, in terms of what the aircraft can do. It's quite another to make assertions from out of one's hind quarters, about what something can't do.
Sure if you like “ridin’ the rattler” but you stated that the F-35 has the “performance and agility at least equal to F/A-18 and F-16 fighters” when plainly it does not. Bit hypocritical to turn around and say that APA make stuff up when you’re doing it yourself.
Making things up would imply providing numbers/capabilities that the manufacturer has never claimed, and that the customer never specified. On many occasions, both LM and USAF have claimed that the F-35 will have not only equal performance to the planes being replaced, but superior.
