You have read my mocking posts about Pentagon and US Air Force “bailing out” SAIC –
SAIC has powerful connections so SAIC is being prevented from an Enron ending which
many think SAIC deserves. The listing doesn’t mention the SAIC debacle

I also want to sue Deloite SAIC’s accountants
and I want arrests NYC gov officials.
Please do go to the site and see in detail the info — look to the right column.
Reminder Rudy Giuliani and his keys deputy mayors turned lobbyists and Mike Bloomberg
pushed SAIC like a drug king pin pushes heroin. They pushed the MTA SAIC
deal which was corrupt and total proof the fix was in — not competitive bidding but rigged.
SAIC awarded 17 Million dollar contract by US Coast Guard – sure glad that isn’t our tax payer
