discussion consisted of each of us explaining why the other one's boss should go to the meeting, since the two people above them both have conflicts.
But this little tidbit came up.
The man who is heading up the project is scheduled to testify to Congress next week. He will be asked some things about this project.
I said, "It's simple. He'll say the Department is still finalizing the way ahead and we will be happy to report the results to Congress when the results are finalized."
My colleague said, "Hmm, I have his written statement and that's exactly what he says. Are you sure you didn't read his testimony?"
Obviously, I've been in this game too long.
