Blowing a Whistle on the GAO?: The Government Accountability Office is often the governmental body that is entrusted with double-checking contracts and ferreting out irregularities in government operations, but a GAO employee is now blowing his own whistle at his bosses. Subrata Ghoshroy, a GAO analyst, claims he and members of his team collaborated with defense contractors in skewing data for a $26 billion Missile Defense Agency anti ballistic missile program. Rep. Howard Berman (D-Calif.) and Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) have just released a 41-page letter from Ghoshroy, who was lead technical analyst on the study commissioned by the two lawmakers. They now want an investigation of the investigators.
