Two more departments decide to cooperate with the PBO

  1. Is someone going to ask the obvious question, why did the govt think it was wrong for the PBO to see the books in the first place?

    I hope the media isn’t going to collectively sigh…ah…at least they’ve done the right thing, that’s the main thing isn’t it?

  2. Operation Drag This Out to Avoid Court but Still Control Information Shared.

  3. Wow…they’re all rollin’ over and turnin’ states’ evidence. How many ya’ figger will cop a plea?

  4. They’ve merely said they’ll file. It remains to be seen what they actually disclose in the way of meaningful data..
