How to avoid investigations - two lessons

1) Say you're a big contractor by the name of, oh, Halliburton. Say someone like, oh, the UN, wants to see your records of $170 million in disputed charges. What do you do? How about ask someone like David Norquist, the Pentagon's comptroller to redact the records for the UN, then get the Pentagon to refuse to hand over the documents to your puppet Congress. How do you reward such service to your company? How about get your puppet Vice President to give Mr. Norquist a raise and new position: DHS Chief Financial Officer where, I'm sure, he'll reign in the spending of your new CIA director Hayden (who overspent some $2 billion as director of the NSA).

2) A much smoother operation occurred at the NSA, which I'm sure Hayden will educate Mr. Norquist on during early meetings at DHS: just deny security clearance to Justice Department investigators. Simple, effective and clean.

It's a beautiful world we live in.
