She seemed reasonably sincere, but the more I listened the more I became frustrated. Her general theme seemed to be, "I don't know why/how/what..., but we'll find out and get back to you". Ok, maybe she wasn't the CEO when this stuff started, but she did have notice that she would be testifying before Congress, so I don't think it unreasonable that she had time to know some of the background so that she could have said something relevant. To me, if she knew nothing on a Sgt Schultz level, then WTH is she doing as CEO of a major corporation?

So the government screwed up in its regulation of GM and the same government was a significant shareholder in the same company. Clearly the definition of conflict of interest I learned has changed somehow.
Politics aside I really can't believe how GM put business ahead of lives for so long. I am sorry we bailed them out.
Or do you believe that the entire situation was known in 2001 and nothing knew was added to the base of knowledge about the situation after that?
