Putting the fox in charge of the hen house.

So how many millions of dollars will this group of crooked officials milk the American tax payers for?

While Swire appointment is encouraging, he needs to speak out more about Georgia Tech's involvement in drone research and the lucrative govt. grants they receive for their part in robbing USA citizens of their privacy.

If and when this investigation is ever finished, I am sure we will get a thick shiny binder with a pretty, full-color government seal on the front and lots of long words inside. We can shelve it next to the Warren Commission report and the FBI's 911 investigation report. And then it will get forgotten, like all the other useless "reviews" of government scandals.

sort of like having alex holder investigate the doj for wrong-doing. or having a bankster investigate jfk's assassination?

You can only judge individuals on their actions and if you judge Obama and the other crooks on capitol hill by theirs you'll find that they're not worth a spit. These cronies are paid up members of the "I'm sold to the highest chequebook club" so they look after their own interest whilst America crumbles around their ears.

Yeah,if this will even happen,espiecially bu the Washington insiders and their useless cronies!

Sounds good on the surface but can Obama be trusted? He promised to close Gitmo but Gitmo is still open for business and he,s still promoting " I have a DRONE " and " Yes we SCAN ". also the mischief war mongering in the middle east and backing of cannibal rebels who are gassing innocent Syrians people.
