Sorry I struck a nerve. That was not my intent.
I was just concerned that you did not answer my question. You failed in your compilation to note the critical wording in the settlements of FCA suits that said the company concerned did not deny or admit wrongdoing. You only would have done this for one reason: to indict rather than tell the truth. If you cared enough, you would consult the publicly available settlement documents for these cases rather than rely on DOJ press releases. Thus, your synopses are misleading, even if you do use the word allegation. Don't you get it? It's easier to smear than to be clear. Do some of that famous research that POGO was known for in the old days. Your founder would be ashamed.

Realize that every time you exaggerate or distort you devalue the work that POGO does. Some of it is untroubled by such shenanigans. You may call my objection to it a hangup, but that trivializes the truth.

POGO usually doesn't react well to feedback. You don't want to get in a position, Jack Nicholson-style, of being open to the charge: "You can't handle the truth." Please try harder. Thanks.




As is almost the 1/2 of the 1/2 trillion dollars of the US Defense Departments budget that is apparently distributed as classified secret spending that is also apparently held unaccountable and therefore presumeably held unaccoutable for any and/or most all accountability including that of wrongdoing.?.

Dear Patty I. Gorgonzola (aka Jumbotron, aka Melvin de Gross, aka Joe Taxpayer,etc...),

If you would carefully read the synopsis for each instance, you would see that we take great pains to point out when something has been proven and when it is just an allegation. We also post and quote from primary sources as much as possible.

In short, we try to be as fair and objective as possible. We want to provide the public a valuable and informative resource, and we think we've succeeded.

If you want to draw a negative connotation from the information in the database, that's your right, and I suppose there's nothing we can do about that. Just be aware there are many others out there who don't share your hang-ups and deeply appreciate the FCMD.
