« POGO is Shocked by Wasteful Spending in DOE Budget | Main | Defense Department Comptroller Hale: The Joint Strike Fighter is an Angsty Teenager »

Mr. Lynn has always been on the side of contractors. That is exactly why he was determined to be "uniquely qualified" to be the Dep Sec. Contractors control the Pentagon whether we all want to believe it or not. POGO, please stay with the investigation of the ethics violations with Mr. Lynn. You were right to take objection to Mr. Lynn and the ethics waiver a year ago. No one wants an administration that supports ethics violations. The problem is that most people do not understand the extent that contractors are entrenched in the Pentagon unless they actually sit in meetings where high level Pentagon officials (e.g., AT&L) make comments about not being too tough on contractors or "contractors will not like it if we do...." Time for POGO to expose this issue in a big way.
