Audit: Justice Department office overstated terrorism conviction statistics

By Ellen Nakashima, E-mail the writer

Shoddy recordkeeping led to significant overstating of terrorism convictions and other inaccuracies by a Justice Department branch that coordinates U.S. attorneys’ offices across the country, according to a federal audit.

The audit by the department’s inspector general, Michael E. Horowitz, found that the Executive Office for U.S. Attorneys (EOUSA) overstated the number of terrorism-related defendants who had been found guilty in fiscal 2009 by 13 percent and then overstated the same statistic in fiscal 2010 by 26 percent.

The executive office, which oversees 93 U.S. attorneys’ offices, also overstated by 19 percent the number of defendants sentenced to prison in 2010, the audit found.


Is there even a chance we can get any truth out of the Obama administration? Lies and exaggerations that's all we get from them. Obama said "Transparency would be the touchstone of his administration". Failing to do so every chance he gets will be the headstone of his legacy. We needed to listen to Ole Hoof 'n Mouth Joe Biden if that makes any sense.....


"The presidency is not something that lends itself to on the job training." - Joe Biden.

Truer words have never been spoken, Obama is living proof of that.

Overstated? Is that another euphemism like misspoke that really means lied? We've been lied to by the IRS, NSA, WH, and certainly by members of Congress so I don't know why anyone would think the DOJ is different.
