The Agriculture Department abruptly ordered congressional auditors to leave its headquarters and told its employees not to cooperate with them.
“You are hereby instructed not to meet with any member of the (Government Accountability Office) today, or until this matter is resolved,” Michael Watts, a top USDA attorney, wrote to employees Wednesday in an e-mail obtained by The Associated Press.
The auditors were seeking information for an ongoing audit on Agriculture’s office of civil rights and its handling of discrimination complaints. Specifically, they were investigating allegations that the department had previously provided false information for the audit.
The Bush regime’s reasoning for spying on innocent civilians is that they shouldn’t worry if they have nothing to hide. This doesn’t apply to the regime itself, obviously.
