Swift's Dilemma: Congress Covers Its Ass

Congressmen complain to Cherthoff that Swift & Co. was harmed by the illegal-immigrant raid. This is called "covering your Congressional ass" and the American Spectator swallowed it whole.

Swift & Co. was a participant in the Congressionally-designed Social Security number-clearance program, which means that Swift & Co. was reasonably diligent.

But the Congressionally-designed program is inadequate (no kidding, Sherlock) for the purpose of detecting SS numbers which are being used twice.

It's a mess, designed by Congress.

But Congressmen will point fingers--so it's DHS' fault, right?
