    Very little fraud in the Recovery Act? Really? Wasn't Solyndra part of the Recovery Act? We're finding out that massive amounts of Stimulus funds went to companies owned by bundlers who gave large contributions to the Obama campaign. When auditors warned about the viability of Solyndra, they were overruled by the White House. We need much more whistleblower protection than we currently have. Also, what about the Fast & Furious whistleblowers at ATF? They haven't exactly been protected.

    Typical of you to pop off about something that is just a bankruptcy issue as of this point. Where were your comments about Cheyney's ex corporation's contracts in the Iraqi war? Oh, but Cheyney is your ally.------Let us get the facts about the case you cited and have it done by someone impartial rather than the mongrels in the House.

  • News Media
    Tea Partier
    There was a time in this country when gov't whistleblowers could go to the news media to report corruption, knowing that the media would investigate it and protect the identities of their sources. Now it appears that the mainstream media is more concerned with protecting a Democrat administration than they are in investigating wrongdoing. But those same rules don't apply when there is a Republican in the White House or seeking the Presidency. Then it's Katie bar the door. The media suddenly does a 180 and looks for anything they can find to destroy that administration or candidate. They seem more interested in political retribution than taxpayer protection.

    Clinton was investigated for having sex with a subordinate while Reagan continued his illegal war involving the contras with no action taken against him. And you are accusing the press of bias? The press has liberal and conservative outlets. Where did you get the idiotic notion about the press?

  • Interoperability problems in Afganastand
    taxpayer1
    " Posted by SIGNAL on 12/13/10 • Categorized as Letters to the Editor [Lt. Col. Joseph (Joe) Hilfiker, USA, submitted this as a letter to the editor. We invite your comments.] I have read the NewsNet article “Handheld Radios for Afghan Coalition” in the November issue of SIGNAL Magazine. We have received a significant number of the RF-310s in RC East. Sending the RF-310 to Afghanistan has been a horrible idea, and we are trying to get them replaced with VRC-110/PRC-152s as quickly as possible. The RF-310 has been a major step backward for coalition interoperability. The Suite B key is not interoperable with the Type 1 key used by all coalition forces. The end result is coalition forces on the battlefield with two types of comsec that cannot talk to each other. Prior to the arrival of the RF-310, coalition partners used/were issued VRC-110/PRC-152s, so we could all communicate at the tactical level. Now, they have a mix of RF-310s and VRC-110/PRC-152s that cannot talk to each other. An example vignette: Patrol from a coalition PRT [provincial reconstruction team] operating in a U.S. Brigade Combat Team’s (BCT’s) battlespace and equipped with RF-310s is in an ambush. They will not be able to call for a nearby COP [common operational picture] via FM for help as their radios are not interoperable. They will not be able to call for help from the BCT they work for because their RF-310s are not compatible in SC TACSAT mode. They will not be able to talk to the aircraft orbiting overhead looking at the smoke to ask for help as their radios are not interoperable. Lt. Col. Joseph (Joe) Hilfiker, USA CJ-6 Director RC-East

    I have no idea what you are trying to communicate.
