    I wish they would be transparent about the money given to Xe, Haliburton, Wackenhut, Lockheed then you would realize how you are really being fleeced...

    If they received any money from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 that would be fine. A search of Lockheed produces 2 results.

    Leave it to Judicial Watch to try to take credit for something that other groups have already been pursuing, but Judicial Watch largely lost their credibility with their relative inaction and ineffectiveness during the Bush years. They proved they're merely a partisan political group, without a principled foundation. And the fact that they don't even give credit where credit is due shows just how unethical they are.

    Propublica, which includes the likes of Henry Louis Gates and other liberals on its board, has been pursuing this issue for at least a month:

    Of course, a far less redacted version of the contract should be released, and I presume that will happen.

    Judicial Watch filed quite a number of lawsuits during the Bush administration. Here are just a few. To claim they are bias is disingenuous. We do agree though that a more complete account of Recovery.gov is needed.

    Re: Transperency?

    You single out lockheed, but ignore the most obvious fraudulent contractors...Haliburton, Xe and Wackenhut... I am really in favor of transparency for everyone, because very few realize how much we get f...ed every day by these contractors...

All the while these defense contractors..commit crimes and continue to defraud the government.. this ain't about George it is much bigger than that. Open you eyes you will be amazed, or keep asking for more koolaid.

    The defense industry produces something..... Jobs, industry and money follows.

    Acorn produces nothing!!! They have no use, serve no purpose! Any more that is.
