State Department Says It Never Got ArmorGroup Whistleblower Info From Lieberman
I asked in an earlier post just what the State Department did with information provided by ArmorGroup whistleblower John Gorman that the office of Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) said it gave to the department’s inspector general in November 2007. Gorman, a former project manager of the contract ArmorGroup holds to protect the U.S. embassy in Kabul, alleged a variety of fraudulent and dangerous practices.
State’s response? It never got a word of it. I received this reply from State:
We have confirmed that no letters regarding these allegations were sent from the relevant Congressional offices to OIG [Office of the Inspector General] and we have no record of these allegations.
I’ve placed a call to Lieberman staffers to find out how they like being called liars.
