Charlie Foxtrot – Who is that?

Charlie Foxtrot is not the name of a person (actually it may well be), but my “word of the day” today. Charlie Foxtrot, according to is a noun of military origin, meaning:
clusterfuck, as expressed in the NATO phonetic alphabet.
[Usage] That project has become a huge Charlie Foxtrot; who’s in charge over there?”

That is, “a big mess, a project full of chaos”. Plural of the “word” is Charlie Foxtrots.
For example: Obama Administration’s “cash for clunkers” program has turned out to be a Charlie Foxtrot. How many such Charlie Foxtrots are in the making?
