WASHINGTON — President George W. Bush on Wednesday established a high-level government panel to recommend steps to guarantee the safety of food and other products shipped into the United States and to improve U.S. policing of those imports. The White House denied the effort was aimed primarily at China.
The president was to meet later Wednesday with his new Import Safety Working Group. The panel will be chaired by Health and Human Services Secretary Michael Leavitt.
Um, if I'm not mistaken, isn't that the job of the Food & Drug Administration?
Why the dog & pony show?
JUST PUT QUALIFIED PEOPLE IN CHARGE THEN MAKE THEM DO THEIR JOB.
Easy scmeasy there George. Now you can get back to your bike.
