Back in the Bush era, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency provided the Pentagon with a list of 5,200 employees suspected of viewing child pornography. Five years later, the Boston Globe discovered that 1,700 of those cases had yet to be investigated. We filed a FOIA. Their investigation is still "open."
Inquiries into why Britain's Home Office mysteriously lost 100 files documenting allegations of an organized pedophile ring involving politicians seem to have stalled recently, with the panel's chair stepping down, due to a conflict of interest. Did America drop the ball on one these high-level child abuse cases too?
A vital element in keeping the peace is our military establishment's access to pharmaceuticals, but according to a new study from the U.S. Government Accountability Office, drug companies are overcharging the Pentagon, on average, by 50 percent on generics, and 60 percent overall. Way to support the troops!
