This is a god damned disgrace. How the hell can we trust government is when they find something wrong, they tell us something is wrong, but won't identify the miscreants in either the contractors or the government?

Oh, yes...maybe certain Senators and Representatives showing favortism and no remorse?? While American families do without and Wall Street gets fat? Ha!

I am appalled at this ridiculous decision!!! Why would this be done??? Right now public school employees are required by law to disclose certain specific incomes! (outside of their school income!). I am sick and tired of this over-the-top, too much power government setting it's own standard to protect criminals. Hello? Dick Cheney. GW Bush. Certain Military staffers, Black Water? maybe?
Demand the documents be open!!!

Transparency? Not in our Government. No way to come back on Halliburton, Boeing, etc.. We have a deficit to pay back, and these no bid contractors get away with waste and outright fraud. Where is the roll of the Supreme Court in holding these corporations accountable? At least post the names and connections of the commissioners on the web so we can keep them in front of our overly uncaring public.


of course this is nothing but a cover up. so the companies that defrauded the tax payer can continue to feed at the trough, a little something extra in you christmas stocking this year senator, courtesy of boeing, northrop grumman, lockheed martin and others... the article says it all, any sensitive material would be redacted anyway, it's just another infuriating example of how bought this government really is. do we even have a department of justice anymore? or is that only used against medicinal marijuana and whistle blowers?


Let's see if I can figure out who might really be responsible for this.....oh gosh. REPUBLICANS


A. D. Jackson

Waste and fraud in govt. contracting need to be dealt with through lawsuits for recovery of money and criminal cases with malefactors sent to jail for a long time. Sensitive material, if it is sensitive, can be blacked out.

And how, may I ask, is this news worthy? Would anybody report on how much sand is in a desert? I think not. What is even worse, I remember when Bush the III, AKA Obama, promised transparency and instead all we got was darker clouds. Buyer beware, when a politician talks about transparency, it translates darker times ahead. When they talk about compassion, it means "shock and awe." hen they talk about being for the Constitution, it means that the darkest time in this country's history is just ahead. When they talk about WMDs, it means they have already drawn up plans to take over the oil fields of other sovereign nations, that for our government and politicians mean they can invade other countries under any pretenses, none true, if oil is involved. Enter "this Christian and democratic nation" proclaiming to care for the citizens of other countries, but the fine print, clearly indicate those nations that have natural resources that we covet all others, need not apply. Somalia has millions ofits citizens at the umbrals of death, but we are too busy invding other nations to worry about Muslims. This "Christian" nation loves to hate Muslims and as with indians,the ony good indian is dead indian. I think we should stop criticizing others for crimes, corruption where we are the masters of te universe.

Another reason govt trust level is in the toilet. Why would they seal it? So they can move across the street and do it all over again.
In China they executed a govt official who was caught taking bribes. They walked his ass to the street ang shot him in the head. I think if we did that a time or two that graft and corruption would stop.
What do we have to lose?


You can thank CWC staffer John Brosnan for the 20 year seal. The word is that one Commissioner (Charles Tiefer) fought this, but Brosnan, a former Republican Hill staffer, and friend of contractors, was too influential among most of the Commissioners on this issue.
