Making Friends and Influencing People

Pen pals edition! 

Before running my article on how it looks like the Justice Department might have conspired to commit fraud as part of a U.S. Government operation that happened to subvert some volunteer tech support of the Arab Spring, I gave the FBI opportunity to comment. 

FBI punted to Justice and Justice ignored me. 

Even though I had other, even more interesting questions for them both. 

So I decided to ask GAO about all this. 

Then I realized I also had information about other stuff GAO might have questions about. 


GAO is really good at looking at numbers and documents, and asking questions. Not that they always get answers, or Congress/the People listen. But they do good work. 

And when nobody listens, they just keep doing it.
