    It just doesn't get any better than this, a general being pressured by the White house to state that something is safe, yet isn't and would interfer with GPS systems. Now here's a thought how would this system, if it can interfer with a military system, interfer with commercial airplanes??

    Watchdogs to pressure Obama after Solyndra, LightSquared - TheHill.com

    And then there's the accusation this week by The Daily Beast that the administration pressured a military officer to alter his testimony before Congress about the wireless company, LightSquared, so that it was more in line with the White House’s political policy on broadband expansion. There has been a steady stream of criticism from the Department of Defense that the company’s technology could interfere with its Global Positioning Systems (GPS).

    Both companies have executives who have given large amounts of money to Obama in recent years -- although LightSquared pointed out that its top executives have given to members of both parties.

    How long is the mainstream media going to ignore their responsibility to report the bad things in the administration? As long as the majority of the media continues to prop up or ignore the criminal behavior it will continue.

    Think anyone is keeping track of all these scams for the 2012 debates?

    Balancing three scandals in these months before the election will be quite a dance for Obama. I hope he has town halls where people can ask questions and we hear more than just speeches.

    Not a chance though.

    I already started a thread on LightSquare yesterday.

    Fact is, ABC news is the one who broke the Solyndra scandal, obtained the E-mails, and is going after Obama and the administration hard on the issue.....It's good to see a left wing media entity taking this inept President on. Particularly because they are not candy coating what appears may have happened.

    You actually missed the interesting part of this one. Obama is personal friends with the top executives at LightSquared, used to own a stake in it, and has many people associated with the company in his administration.

    The Center for Public Integrity: Politically-connected LightSquared wins approval for wireless Internet plan despite GPS disruption concerns

    Just a tip, always use HuffPo as a reference when you want to poke at Obama, it drives the Obamazombies crazy because they cannot dismiss it outright as a right wing blog secretly run by Fox News and owned by the Koch brothers.
