Corruption Over Security

Not sure why this case hasn't attracted more attention:

Then the effort, about 18 months after its inception, drew to a halt, for reasons that had nothing to do with its virtues or drawbacks. The authority fired Mr. Anemone and Mr. Casale in May 2003, one month after they made allegations of corruption not related to counterterrorism efforts. Each man has sued the authority, alleging he was unjustly fired.

So, the New York MTA is trying to make things more secure - you know, post-9/11 and all that jazz, but two whistleblowers had to go fuck everything up by pointing out that a couple of crooks in the MTA were stealing shitloads of taxpayer money. Got it.

Got it?
