We need a new word for 'incompetence.' The Bush administration has worn out the old one.I think that is being overly generous. Incompetence suggests that they are being honest, yet incapable of doing their jobs effectively. Kind of like an entire administration of Gomer Pyles. Unfortunately, that presumes that they have the best of intentions.
As we keep finding out as the thread unwinds on this story, at least, is that there may be some serious conflicts of interest with the sale of POS to DPW on the part of some of the key administration officials involved.
Further, the administration's stubborn stance and threats of vetos, etc. suggest that there is more than meets the eye on this. Why would they be so adamant about this if they were so uninvolved and underinformed?
Follow the money.
