    1. Rodney Dill Says:

      Now all the SFB’s can claim they caused the increase to happen. It’s a no lose position, if there is not an increase they can continue to be the “whistle blower.”

      Must be great to have no moral responsibility whatsoever.

    2. The Misanthrope Says:

      Why should there be a retraction? Possibly all the criticism did some good.

    3. Chuck Simmins Says:

      The director of USAID explained the $35 million on 12/29 in a press briefing. It was “petty cash” for the assessment teams. I explain that issue, and cover much more about stingy Americans on my blog.
