Crew/Carg Missions Out

According to NASA Watch, the JSC has said that crew and cargo missions to the Moon are out. Cargo with have to fly on separate missions. I wonder if they would consider buying cargo flights to the Moon when the time comes? Like a lunar COTS. Just a thought.

No, NASA is killing cargo because of the Ares I/V performance shortfall. They can't carry 2t of science cargo because there is no margin for it. Crew/cargo mixing is just a lame excuse.
