Boeing Scandal Heats Up, Touches White House

This story about the corrupt Boeing/DoD deal seems like a small thing, and it probably is. But it's also the type of story that could become suddenly very big, depending on what's in those 45 sections:

In the copy of the report obtained by The Washington Post, 45 sections were deleted by the White House counsel's office to obscure what several sources described as references to White House involvement in the lease negotiations and its interaction with Boeing. The Pentagon separately blacked out 64 names and many e-mails. It also omitted the names of members of Congress, including some who pressured the Pentagon to back the deal.

I'll be interested to see how Fox News and the WH communications office justifies withholding this information.
