this is exactly the reason why we are broke today. Why spending on why it was so secret? Instead why so much money spent and no result.

It's amazing how the public is like a dog chasing after a bone the media throws out. This is old news guys. It's an old program they tried to revive but couldn't because of the legal issues. Those issues were dealt with behind closed doors at the CIA. By the way...while you're out chewing on this thing...see if your flat screen isn't going out the front door. There's some democrat tweakers looking for another fix.

Pelosi's House is in permanent investigation mode.

Do they get paid extra for this or something?

We should demand a GAO report on Congressional waste and resources spent on really stupid investigations.

Then the CBO should be required to give us an estimate on any new investigation before they can have another one.
