Removing DCAA Director Won't Fix the Agency's Problems
WASHINGTON - "Contractors have been on a rampage fighting new requirements being placed upon them by DCAA for the past year. Removing the Director of DCAA does not address Congressional and taxpayer concerns that this agency lacks the independence and clout necessary to serve taxpayer interests. It would be unfortunate and ironic if Congressional inquiries into the independence and strength of DCAA ultimately serves to strengthen the hand of contractors."

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever
Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
