    I have attempted to summarize below the salient facts and objections to the IOM contract. Hopefully this can be of help to anyone struggling to understand it from all the different threads or to anyone in need of a simple way to explain it to others.

    Please let me know if you have any suggestions.

    Its a great summary asleep. The only item I would add to that is the waste of one million taxpayers' dollars.

    Thanks for the summary. This will help me compose the letter I plan to write to the President this weekend. Heck, what have I got to loose. I just have to figure out where that webpage it for receiving communication.

    If I manage to get it done this weekend I'll post it here. If anyone knows where the White House contact portal is, please let me know.
