This may be true - but the same magazine some months ago reported that the results of the competition were partly due to the fact that Boeing didn’t provide a competitive aircraft that met the requirements.

The 767 offering is short on distance capability and carrying capacity if my memory of the article is correct. The article painted Boeing as arrogant in their approach to the competition.

But was therefore able to operate from more (smaller) bases, which was a point of contention because the AF de-emphasized that as part of their shenanigans.
