Replacement for F-117?

At this moment I can't understand why the USAF is retiring his fleet of F-117's. With only 20 B2 bombers and a few F22's (but not fully operational) I don't think the USAF has enough stealt planes operational to resolve sudden "problems" abroad.

Do you think the USAF is hiding a replacement for the F-117 in a black project, just like the early days of the F-117? The F-117 was also almost 10 years operational before we were informed about its existence. Could it be the "Black Manta" or a development of the A-12 Avenger II which was canceled in the early ninetees?
