Re: Liquidate LightSquared and be done with it
Nice history rewrite. The FCC gave them a waiver to prove they could mitigate the interference. They didn't prove it so the waiver was taken away. Falcone got the testing waiver in part because of his connections (and mostly because it's the right thing to do, because if he was right that they had developed technology to mitigate the interference it would be foolish not to let him try to prove it), those include the Obama administration and a dozen key congresscritters who are about equal numbers of democrat and republican. It was those congresscritters who were writing letters and insisting the FCC grant the waiver.
Because if there is one thing that's bipartisan in Congress it's corruption. Only a fool would lay the entire blame on a the president when you have more than a dozen senators and representatives writing letters every other week to the FCC. And the same fool would argue that the only reason the waiver continuation was denied was political.
