Shuttle post-mortem

There is always a person like this, ready to say "I told you so, and here's the paperwork to prove it" when something in the world goes disasterously wrong. So I can only take this so seriously as a suggestion of a careless administration in NASA or the US government.

It is instead this sentence in the story which clearly scares me:

But when I tried to raise my concerns with NASA's new administrator, I received two reprimands for not going through the proper channels, which discouraged other people from coming forward with their concerns.

A more eloquent argument for whistle-blower legislation I have not heard.
